for measurement of Colonic Transit Time
Transi-Mark® is a safe and reliable medical device for measuring Colonic Transit Time for patients with chronic constipation or other digestive disorders. Each kit contains 6 capsules of 10 radiopaque markers needed to examine a patient.
The examination consists in ingesting every day for 6 days, always at the same time, a capsule containing 10 radio-opaque markers (small cubes of 2.5 mm), and in carrying out on the seventh day a simple X-ray of the Abdomen Without Preparation. The x-ray should be done at the same time as taking the capsules.
Easily identifiable and quantifiable on the X-ray due to their cubic shape, the markers are made of medical grade silicone impregnated with barium sulphate with recognized opacifying properties.
These markers are contained in vegetable capsules made of hypromellose which disintegrate in the stomach.
They are to be taken orally and will not be digested or metabolized and will pass naturally in the stool.
1 capsule per day for 6 days and an x-ray of the abdomen on D+7*
