New Improved Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy System

Celiac.com 11/24/2007 - A new confocal laser microscopic probe has been developed by Mauna Kea Technologies which works in conjunction with conventional endoscopes providing real-time video sequences of the intestinal mucosa magnified 500-1000 times greater than the conventional endoscopic view.  Both normal endoscopic images and confocal images are available simultaneously, allowing the confocal probe to be visually positioned with the endoscope.  This system allows for an immediate diagnosis and eliminates the need to take and prepare intrusive biopsy samples.  The new system is an improvement over previously available confocal laser endomicroscopy systems, being easier and more intuitive to use.  Studies have shown the system to be effective in diagnosing celiac disease.  The Mauna Kea technologies website provides a detailed description of the device.

New clinical studies confirm Mauna Kea Technologies’ endomicroscopy system in a range of procedures

The basic idea is that you don't want to use something that might have gluten in/on it. Pots and pans are easy to wash and get clean - a colander is not - all those little holes full of pasta goo. A toaster with crumbs.

Newbie mom of 15 yr old DD diagnosed 3 weeks ago. Just purchased brand new Farbwrware, nonstick items. Are these safe to use for her needs? Is it just scratched or oldish Teflon that's not suitable or all Teflon? These will only be used for gluten-free cooking. Trying to learn e as we go.

I highly recommend being tested for celiac disease before you go off gluten, if you haven't already done so.

Hi. I'm new to this! Please help me get started. I want to try..I mean DO...a gluten free life so that, hopefully, my health issues will go away. So, please help me.
