ADVIA Centaur B·R·A·H·M·S PCT (License Partner: Siemens)

2017 instrument PCT ADVIA CentaurChemiluminescent assay (CLIA) for the determination of Procalcitonin (PCT) in human serum and plasma on the ADVIA Centaur XP and ADVIA Centaur CP random access analysers (Siemens)





Assay characteristics

ADVIA Centaur B·R·A·H·M·S PCT assay can be distinguished by these characteristics:

Test principle One-step chemiluminescence immunoassay using three monoclonal antibodies (sandwich principle)
Sample matrix  Serum, plasma (heparin, EDTA)
Sample volume  100 μL
Time to result 26 min (Centaur CP) / 29 min (Centaur XP)
Measuring range  0.02-75.00 μg/L
Functional sensitivity (LoQ) <0.05 μg/L
Analytical sensitivity (LoD) <0.02 μg/L

Limit of Quantitation (LoQ) and Limit of Detection (LoD) values are rounded to 2 decimal places in alignment with the reported results for the assay.
