Procalcitonin (PCT) has a very low level of concentration in healthy humans, but rises rapidly within 3-6 hours of infection and continues to show a high level of infection progression. PCT half-life of about 24 hours, the stability is better. These characteristics make the PCT an ideal marker for the diagnosis of severe bacterial infections and sepsis diagnosis and treatment and have been clinically recognized. As a professional medical reagents manufacturer in China, Hipro provides high-quality procalcitonin reagent at reasonable prices.
The antibody of mouse anti-human procalcitonin is coated on the latex surface.
The Procalcitonin 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 PCT levels.
Using a specific protein analyzer to measure the intensity of scattered light, the concentration of PCT is determined by comparing the turbidity of samples to the standard concentration.
