Enzyme-linked fluorescent assay (ELFA) for the determination of human Procalcitonin (PCT) in human serum or plasma (lithium heparinate) on the VIDAS® instruments (bioMérieux)

Assay characteristics

  • One-step immunoassay sandwich method with a final fluorescent detection (ELFA)
  • Sample matrix: Human serum or plasma (lithium heparinate) 
  • Sample volume: 200 μL 
  • Incubation time: 20 min
  • Measuring range: 0.05-200 μg/L
  • Functional assay sensitivity: 0.09 μg/L

Test procedure

Type or select “PCT” on the instrument to enter the test code and insert the SPRs (Solid Phase Receptacle) and strips into the instrument. Then pipette calibrator, control or sample into the strip and initiate the assay immediately.

  • 200 μL of sample are pipetted into the cavity of the test strip 
  • Test processing for approximately 20 minutes 
  • Automatic calculation of result by the system
