Procalcitonin LiquiColor ® Assay

Procalcitonin (PCT) is a marker for bacterial infection and sepsis. ​PCT levels elevate during systemic bacterial infection and sepsis.

The new Procalcitonin Liquicolor immunoturbidimetric assay can be used in conjunction with other tests to quickly assess initial severity of sepsis.

PCT is precise, convenient and cost effective. It is available in a liquid-stable format which can remain on-board a clinical chemistry analyzer for up to four weeks, and requires a minimal sample of just 20 µL.

PCT can also improve laboratory workflow as it can be run on a primary chemistry analyzer and eliminate the need for sample splitting. 

Stanbio Chemistry also provide controls and calibrator sets for PCT. The full range can be viewed here
