The imaware™ mission is to reduce the number of undiagnosed celiac patients.

Celiac Disease is one of the most underdiagnosed diseases in the world[A]

3M

Americans are currently affected by Celiac Disease

60%

of those affected are undiagnosed

Have you experienced any celiac disease symptoms?

You may have celiac disease if you have experienced any of the following symptoms:

• Bloating

• Weight loss

• Cramps

• Digestion issues

In addition, you may have celiac disease if a family member of yours has been diagnosed, as first-degree family members are 15x more likely to have celiac disease as well.[B]

Don’t leave the celiac awareness question unanswered

Choose a quick and easy testing experience

It takes the average American 4 years from recognizing symptoms to be diagnosed with celiac disease. imaware™ provides results back within 5 days to help speed up diagnosis.

Take advantage of early detection

Early detection and adjustment to lifestyle habits are critical to improving quality of life and reducing unnecessary pain and suffering.

Access your results anywhere, any time, and share them easily with your healthcare professional.

Empowering

Engage your Physician Sooner

We provide you clear next steps and guide you to engage your doctor sooner.

Utilizing the “Screening Gold Standard”

We utilize the highly sensitive and specific Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) Antibody, or tTG-IgA biomarker for screening the majority of celiac disease patients.

This biomarker has shown to be highly accurate when screening for celiac disease in 98% of the celiac population, and is labeled the “screening gold standard”. Some scenarios may exist where tTG-IgA is negative, and our test also screens for increased tTG-IgG and DGP-IgG biomarker scenarios.

Utilizing tTG-IgA for screening means you can confidently share these results with your doctor knowing they will concur with this common testing standard.

Using an imaware™ collection kit

The imaware™ home collection kit is easy to use, painless, and requires only 5 drops of blood.

1

Draw 5 drops of blood

Use the pain-free lancet by pressing it against the tip of your finger and press the button

2

Collect in the microtube

Collect the drops of blood from your finger into a microtube

3

Secure and return microtube

Secure the microtube, and mailing it back to us with the provided return label.

4

Check your results online

Your results are available online for review within 5 days

Still have questions about how imaware™ works?

Here are just a few of the things people frequently ask about imaware. If you don’t see your question here, get in touch with us by clicking here.

How do I prepare for my celiac disease test?
You do not need to fast or make any special preparations to complete your celiac disease screening test. We do require patients to be eating small amounts of gluten in order to measure your immune response.
Will this test be accurate if I'm currently eating only gluten-free foods?
Like all blood tests, we test your immune response to the presence of gluten. This requires you to eat the equivalent of 1/2 slice of bread or 2 crackers daily for a period of 8 weeks.
What are celiac disease biomarkers?
A celiac-specific biomarker is a measurable indicator of your body's response or condition to gluten. The two most common celiac biomarkers are tTG and DGP. In patients with celiac disease, these specific biomarkers are found to be elevated.
What makes the imaware™ celiac disease test unique?
imaware™ is a comprehensive test for celiac disease that utilizes the prevalence of family history, diabetes, and other relevant conditions in our report. Our test also measures multiple celiac disease biomarkers and combines the results together to provide more accurate insights of your celiac condition.
Is the imaware™ celiac disease test as accurate as a DNA test for celiac disease?
imaware™ celiac disease test is more accurate, as it tests your blood for presence of celiac disease biomarkers. DNA kits test for the genetic markers that may indicate a predisposition for celiac disease.
What is the difference between celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity?
Celiac disease is an auto-immune disorder that occurs in response to the ingestion of gluten. Non-celiac gluten sensitivity is the least understood reaction to gluten, and can be investigated after celiac disease is ruled out.
Are there any special return shipping instructions?
No, simply drop-off the package in the provided shipping bag at any USPS mailbox or store location at any time.
