Assay characteristics

The VIDAS B·R·A·H·M·S PCT assay is a one-step immunoassay sandwich method with a final fluorescent detection (ELFA) can be distinguished by these characteristics:

Sample matrix  Human serum or plasma (lithium heparinate) 
Sample volume  200 μL
Incubation time 20 min
Measuring range  0.05-200 μg/L
Limit of Quantification (LoQ) 0.05 μg/L
Limit of Detection (LoD) 0.03 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.
