Calibrated to the reference standard B·R·A·H·M·S PCT sensitive KRYPTOR.
ARCHITECT B·R·A·H·M·S PCT can be used with the same clinical cut-offs and algorithms.
ARCHITECT B·R·A·H·M·S PCT is a chemiluminescent microparticle immunoassay (CMIA) for the quantitative determination of PCT (Procalcitonin) in human serum and plasma on the automated ARCHITECT analyzer (Abbott)
A study was performed based on guidance from CLSI EP05-A3. Testing was conducted using 2 lots of ARCHITECT B∙R∙A∙H∙M∙S PCT Reagents, 2 lots of ARCHITECT B∙R∙A∙H∙M∙S PCT Calibrators, and 1 lot of ARCHITECT B∙R∙A∙H∙M∙S PCT Controls on 2 instruments. 3 controls and 3 human plasma panels were assayed in a minimum of 2 replicates at 2 separate times per day on 20 different days.
