The CRP rapid test is used for the detection of the C-reactive protein in whole blood, serum and plasma. The CRP level increases to a particularly high level in the presence of bacterial infections and is considered a risk factor for arteriosclerosis.
Advantages of the CRP Rapid Test
The C-reactive protein is a part of the group of active phase proteins and, consequently, of the immune system. In the event of bacterial infection, after surgery or in the presence of inflammatory processes in the body, the CRP level increases dramatically. The increase in CRP concentration to >10mg/l can be detected with this CRP rapid test; in order to indicate a widespread serious inflammation or bacterial infection, it not only has the 10mg/l-test line, but an addtional line for levels >30mg/l.
As it is well known that a bacterial infection causes a far higher CRP level than a viral one, the CRP test enables you to distinguish quickly and reliably between the two infections so that you can choose the appropriate treatment.
Because the CRP test is easy to use, you can easily carry it out in your medical practice – no need for a laboratory. The CRP rapid test will help you save essential time when starting the required treatment.
The CRP test contains the test lines for 10mg/l and30mg/l, plus one further line so that you can verify that the CRP test has been carried out correctly, even if the results are negative.
The test kit consists of: 10 CRP rapid test cassettes, mixer tubes, filters, reagent, pipettes and detailed instructions.
