Procalcitonin FS is a particle enhanced immunoturbidimetric assay for the determination of procalcitonin (PCT) in serum and plasma on automated photometric systems.
PCT serum levels in healthy individuals are very low. In response to microbial systemic infections and sepsis, PCT is ubiquitously expressed in multiple tissues via stimulation by inflammatory cytokines or bacterial endotoxins and may increase significantly.
The fluid-stable reagent (R1 + R2) shows comparable performance to competitors and has good concordance to established methods. The assay is applicable to various common clinical chemistry analyzers and is therefore suitable for routine measurement of PCT in sepsis management.
In conclusion, DiaSys offers a reliable alternative, when time matters in sepsis management.
