C-reactive protein (CRP) is an acute-phase protein that can react with Streptococcus pneumonia C polysaccharide to form complex, it can be used for differential diagnosis of bacterial and viral infections, Diagnosis, and monitoring of autoimmune and infectious diseases, as well as antibiotic efficacy observation. Meanwhile, CRP is an effective indicator of the risk of predicting future cardiovascular events (acute coronary syndromes, myocardial infarction, stroke, etc.).
The antibody of the C-reactive protein Test Kit is coated on the latex surface.
The CRP in the sample and the antibody become immune complexes by Latex agglutination reaction.
The immune complexes will produce the phenomenon of light scattering which is proportional to the intensity of scattered light and samples of CRP levels.
Using a specific protein analyzer to measure the intensity of scattered light, the concentration of CRP is determined by comparing the turbidity of samples to the standard concentration.
