PCT CLIA Test CE
The Procalcitonin (PCT) Chemiluminescence ImmunoAssay (CLIA) Test is a chemiluminescence-based immunoassay for the quantitative detection of procalcitonin in human serum or plasma (lithium heparin, K2EDTA, or K3EDTA) using the ALTA CLIAlyzer.
Sepsis is a serious medical condition characterized by an overwhelming systemic immune response to an infection caused by bacteria or other microbes. If untreated, severe sepsis can lead to organ failure and drop in blood pressure that can progress into a life-threatening septic shock condition.
In healthy people, PCT levels in the blood are low (~0.05 ng/mL), but increase rapidly in response to a systemic bacterial infection1. The concentration of PCT in the blood correlates with both bacterial load and severity of infection. The half-life of circulating PCT is short, only 25-30 hours. Therefore, PCT is a good biomarker for the specific detection of a systemic bacterial infection.
Working range: 0.02-100 ng/mL.
Limit of Detection (LOD): 0.02 ng/mL.
CV less than 8%
CV less than 10%
Linearity between 0.02 and 100 ng/mL.
No significant cross-reactivity was observed when calcitonin (10 ng/mL), Katacalcin (30 ng/mL), α-CGRP (10 μg/mL) or β-CGRP (10 μg/mL) were spiked to zero PCT serum sample. The results of PCT in these samples were less than 0.02 ng/mL.
No significant interference was detected up to the concentrations mentioned below:
|Total Protein||4 g/dL|
|Rheumatoid Factor||1500 IU/mL|
Patient specimens containing human anti-mouse antibodies (HAMA) may give falsely elevated or decreased values. Although HAMA-neutralizing agents are added, extremely high HAMA serum concentrations may occasionally affect the results.
There is no high-dose hook effect at PCT concentration up to 1000 ng/mL.
