Artron Procalcitonin Diagnostic Test
PCT is the most accurate biomarker for the diagnosis of sepsis. Sepsis or septicemia (blood poisoning) is a potentially fatal condition that is usually associated with a bacterial infection. In order to detect sepsis before it becomes life-threatening, a sensitive and rapid diagnostic test that can test for an accurate biomarker is required. Artron Rapid PCT diagnostic test is a convenient colloidal gold immunochromatographic assay designed to detect PCT concentration in the human body. In addition, it can be used to assess the effectiveness of antibiotic treatments.
