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 20µL.
