Simtomax® is a simple rapid test that detects coeliac disease associated IgA and IgG antibodies against a unique combination of Deamidated Gliadin Peptides (DGP) as well as the total level of IgA. Simtomax® offers high diagnostic accuracy1, speed and ease of use at the point of care.
Simtomax® works with a small amount of capillary whole blood, serum or plasma. It will deliver results in just 10 minutes, while performing at a comparable level to the standard laboratory-based serological tests.1, 2, 3, 4
