Full Product Name: Indican (Obermeyer) Test Kit
Description: Indican (indoxyl sulfate) is a putrefaction product resulting from bacterial deconjugation of dietary tryptophan to indole in the small intestine. Indican levels are directly associated with bacterial activity in the intestines. Elevated levels indicate intestinal toxemia or overgrowth of anaerobic bacteria, putrefaction of undigested food in the bowels, stomach disorder (constipation, malabsorption), intestinal disorders and pancreatic insufficiency.

BioAssay Systems' Urinary Indican Test Kit is a less hazardous modification of the original Obermeyer indican reagent. It provides an accurate, simple, fast (15 min), and inexpensive screening tool for the identification of protein putrefaction in the gastrointestinal tract.
