PCT improves diagnosis and monitoring of bacterial infection and sepsis

Procalcitonin (PCT) is a biomarker that reacts with high sensitivity and specificity to generalized infection and sepsis. It correlates better than all other existing parameters to the inflammatory activity of the immune system and can be used to diagnose and to monitor severe bacterial infections and sepsis.

PCT is increasingly recognized as an important diagnostic and monitoring tool in clinical practice that provides significant information for clinical decision making.
