Labcorp 1st to offer test for unintentional gluten consumption

Labcorp is offering a new test designed to detect and quantify unintentional gluten consumption.

The company said March 17 it is the first U.S. commercial lab to offer the test, which was developed by Immundiagnostik. It detects gluten in a patient's stool sample.

"Having the ability to confirm and measure unintended gluten exposure gives patients more control over their diets and their health," Celiac Disease Foundation CEO Marilyn Geller said in the news release. "Labcorp is the first clinical reference lab in the United States to offer a test that utilizes stool samples to directly quantify the disease-triggering source. This new option opens the door for more people across the country to better manage their celiac disease or [non-celiac gluten sensitivity]."
