The Lactoferrin IBD-SCAN is a quantitative enzyme linked immunosorbent assay for measuring concentrations of fecal lactoferrin, a marker for leukocytes. An elevated level is an indicator of intestinal inflammation. The test can be used as an in vitro diagnostic aid to distinguish patients with active inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) from those with noniflammatory irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Collect undiluted feces in clean, dry, sterile leak proof
container. Do not add fixative or preservative. From collection
time to the time stool is frozen must not exceed 48 hours. Patients
may collect stool and hold at room temperature until it can be
properly frozen. The time held at room temperature must not exceed
48 hours from time of collection. Specimens can be delivered to PSC
or physician's office for freezing and delivery to the laboratory.
