2017 test tubes BRAHMS PCT LIA

Immunoluminometric assay (ILMA) for the quantitative determination of Procalcitonin (PCT) in human serum and plasma.





Assay characteristics

The B·R·A·H·M·S PCT LIA assay is a one-step immunoluminescence assay using coated tube system with two monoclonal antibodies (sandwich principle) and can be distinguished by these characteristis:

Sample matrix  Serum, plasma 
Sample volume  20 μL
Incubation time 60 min at room temperature (18-25 °C)
Measuring range 0.1-500 μg/L
Functional assay sensitivity (LoQ) 0.30 μg/L
High-dose hook No high-dose hook effect detectable up to 900 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.
