Procalcitonin Determination Kit

Product Name: Procalcitonin Determination Kit (Fluorescence Immunoassay)

Abbreviation:  PCT



For the quantitative detection of procalcitonin in human serum, plasma or whole blood.

Procalcitonin (PCT) is a hormone-active protein, mainly synthesized in the thyroid follicular cells. It is composed of three parts of N-terminal residue-calcitonin-C terminal calcitonin. It is a precursor peptide of calcitonin and an inflammatory medium with a molecular weight of 13KD. It has become a new microbiological indicator for identifying serious bacterial infections in recent years. The level of serum PCT will increase when the patient is under severe bacteria, parasites, fungal infections, sepsis or MODS. So it can be used as adjunctive diagnosis of diseases such as bacterial infections.



Take the sample to the strip, the PCT in the sample is bound to the antibody coated with the fluorescent particles coated on the glass fiber to form a fluorescent particle-antibody-antigen complex. The immune complex is further chromatographed along the nitrocellulose membrane to the detection zone (T), and combined with the pre-coated mouse anti-PCT monoclonal antibody, the fluorescence intensity is proportional to the PCT content in the sample, and the remaining fluorescent antibody particle layer Factored to the QC zone (C) and bound to pre-coated goat anti-mouse IgG.
