Biocard Celiac Disease At Home Test Kit by 2GPharma Inc.


A simple at-home test for celiac disease

Finally a reliable, simple, affordable and very rapid test for the detection of celiac disease—and it can be done within the comfort of your own home!

The new Biocard Celiac Test from 2GPharma Inc. can be used as an aid in the diagnosis of celiac disease, although confirmation can only be done by a medical doctor.

The Biocard Celiac Test is a home test for the detection of celiac disease-associated IgA antibodies to transglutaminase from a fingertip blood sample that can be obtained hygienically via a small, sterile lancet that is contained within the Biocard Celiac Test kit.

Test results can be read within 10 minutes. The sampling is practically painless and all materials required for the test are included along with fool proof step by step instructions on how to perform the test (although it is important to read the instructions fully before you use the kit). The results are easy to read and have a 93% accuracy.

I decided to use the Biocard Celiac Test on my husband and the entire procedure took less than 2 minutes and the results were received within 10 minutes.  Luckily, he did not carry the antibodies for celiac disease at this time.

You must NOT be gluten-free for about 2 months prior to the test, or it will likely be false negative.

My blood test was negative, and I was later diagnosed celiac. Note the accuracy of the test is 93%, which is in actually quite low. Plus you can be celiac without having the antibodies in your bloodstream. Your gut has to be damaged to the point where the antibodies can then get into the blood stream. So use this test with the knowledge that a false negative is likely .

From the Chicago Celiac Disease Center which is one of the premier celiac disease research & treatment centers in the world: Are you scheduled for a biopsy? Are you eating gluten? Any changes in your diet can affect the accuracy of your biopsy result...

My panel was the same as yours........all tests positive by large numbers so you can consider yourself a Celiac. Are you very symptomatic? I will add that I did not eat Whole Foods exclusively when healing. I needed to gain weight badly so ate gluten-free bread and a few other things that ...

My allergist did suggest I cut out gluten right away, but I?ll call the GI tomorrow and discuss that. Thank you!

He only did 2 of the full panel & you are positive on one of them, the DGP IgG. It only takes one positive to move on to an endoscopy. Here's the full celiac serum panel: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) Ig...

That's about the most definitive positive across the board that I've ever seen. You're way positive on every one. Keep eating gluten every single day until the endoscopy! You don't have to eat a ton, 1 or 2 slices of gluten bread per day will do it. Orrrrrrrrrrr you could take this time to pig ou...
