ARCHITECT B·R·A·H·M·S PCT (License Partner: Abbott)

Instrument Architect BRAHMS PCT

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). 


Assay characteristics

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

Test principle CMIA
Sample matrix  Serum, plasma (heparin, EDTA)
Sample volume  150 μL
Test duration 22 min
Measuring range  0.02-100 μg/L
Limit of Quantification (LoQ) 0.01 μg/L
Analytical sensitivity (LoD) 0.00 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.
