It detects Coeliac Disease associated IgA auto-antibodies against Transglutaminase Enzymes, that completely and exactly correlate with the disease. The test procedure only takes between 5 and 10 minutes.

The test performance has been studied at the University of Tampere, Finland, by comparing the results to biopsy proven clinical diagnosis. Celiac Testing can be used to easily monitor the effectiveness of a gluten-free diet by retesting after 3 months.
