B·R·A·H·M·S PCT sensitive KRYPTOR

2017 instrument BRAHMS KRYPTOR

The technical and clinical reference standard for all B·R·A·H·M·S PCT assays. 
All clinical cut-offs and algorithms were developed based on B·R·A·H·M·S PCT sensitive KRYPTOR.

Thermo Scientific B·R·A·H·M·S PCT sensitive KRYPTOR is a homogeneous immunoassay for the quantitative determination of PCT (Procalcitonin) in human serum or plasma on the automated Thermo Scientific B·R·A·H·M·S KRYPTOR random access analyser.
