Inflammation – PCT

Immunoassay for the in vitro quantitative determination of PCT(procalcitonin) concentration in human whole blood, serum and plasma.
Fast, easy and cost-efficient testing.
Excellent correlation with industry standard.

Procalcitonin is a specific indicator of severe bacterial inflammation and fungal infection. It is also a reliable indicator of multiple organ failure related to sepsis and inflammatory activities. The serum level of procalcitonin in healthy people is extremely low, and the increase of procalcitonin in serum is closely related to bacterial infection. Severe patients at risk of infection can be monitored through procalcitonin monitoring. Procalcitonin is only synthesized in systemic bacterial infection or sepsis, not in local inflammation and mild infection. Therefore, procalcitonin is a better tool than C-reactive protein, interleukin, body temperature, leukocyte count and erythrocyte sedimentation rate in monitoring severe interference . Clinical commonly used immunoassay methods include immunochromatography, colloidal gold, chemiluminescence immunoassay (CLIA) and so on.
