Procalcitonin FS

Product Number: 1 7318


Sepsis is a life-threatening organ dysfunction caused by an uncontrolled immune response due to infection. It is a global health problem and a leading cause of death worldwide, with an estimated 48.9 million people dying each year. [1-3]

Early diagnosis and treatment of sepsis remains a major challenge in intensive care units. PCT, the thyroid precursor of calcitonin, is a 116 amino acid polypeptide with a molecular weight of about 13 kDa. Under physiological conditions, PCT is specifically synthesized by thyroid C cells and divides successively into 3 fragments, N-terminus, calcitonin and katacalcin. [3-8]

Serum PCT levels in healthy individuals are very low (<0.05 ng/mL). In response to microbial infection and systemic sepsis, PCT is expressed in various tissues via stimulation by inflammatory cytokines or bacterial endotoxins and can be elevated up to 1000 ng/mL. [5-8]


Ready to use reagent.

Proline Procalcitonin FS comes in a liquid format which provides convenience for users as no reconstitution is required which helps reduce the risk of misdiagnosis.

Open system reagent, compatible with a wide range of instruments.

Proline Procalcitonin FS reagent is suitable for various third party analyzers such as Abbott, Advia, Cobas, Hitachi, Olympus, Response, TokyoBoeki, and Beckman Coulter. Please contact our technical support at for further compatibility information on other types of analyzers.
