Gluten ID Test for Celiac Disease Risk
GLUTEN ID® is a celiac genetics health risk screening test designed for individuals, families, and populations. GLUTEN ID is developed and optimized by ResearchDx scientists and performed by Next-Generation sequencing (NGS) for detection of variants in the HLA-DQA1, DQB1 genes linked to celiac genetic risk haplotypes.
All celiac genetic risk DQ2, DQ8 haplotypes supported by Level I (the highest) Level of Evidence (LOE) are covered by the test. If none of the celiac risk-associated GLUTEN ID haplotypes are detected the result is reported as non-celiac genetics which has greater than 99% negative predictive value (NPV) for the development of celiac disease.
Cheek swab samples for GLUTEN ID can be collected non-invasively at home or in a physician’s office with results reported within 14 days.

Methodology: Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) is used to assess the presence or absence of HLA-DQ2/DQ8 genes in individuals exhibiting symptoms associated with celiac disease. Genotypically, these genes are present in nearly 100% of celiacs. A negative test result may ‘rule-out’ celiac disease whereas a positive result should be followed with additional diagnostic testing to confirm a celiac disease diagnosis. Results should be interpreted in the context of the patient’s clinical and laboratory findings.
