About the parameter
C-reactive Protein (CRP) is the best known among the acute-phase proteins; a group of proteins whose concentration increases in blood as a response to inflammatory disorders. It increases after only 6 hours in acute inflammatory processes associated with bacterial infections, post operative conditions or tissue damage.
Kinetic determination of the concentration of CRP by photometric measurement at 546nm or 700nm of antigen-antibody reaction between antibodies to human CRP bound to polystyrene particles and CRP present in the sample.
Test duration takes approx. 3 minutes measuring serum, approx. 4 minutes measuring whole blood.
Method – Measurement Range
This test is an immunoturbidimetric assay with 2 ranges:
0,5 – 120 mg/l for 546nm
1,0 – 120 mg/l for 700nm
2,0 – 240 mg/l for 546nm and 700nm
- haematocrit correction
CV < 3.5% (serum)
CV < 5.0% (whole blood)
0,5 – 120 mg/l (serum)
2,0 – 240 mg/l (whole blood)
Simple procedure – 3 quick steps to get CRP test results with highest accuracy

Euroylser CRP is a simple test for quantitative determination of C-reactive protein (CRP) in whole blood, serum or plasma using the Eurolyser smart instrument. Measurement of CRP is helpful in the clinical management of a patient with symptoms of infection.
C-reactive protein (CRP) is the best known among the acute-phase proteins, a group of proteins whose concentration increases in blood as a response to inflammatory disorders. It increases already after 6 hours in acute inflammatory processes associated with bacterial infections, post operative conditions or tissue damage.
When the test is performed at the point of care the result will be available during patient consultation and can effectively guide antibiotic use. The Eurolyser system – consisting of a small instrument and a ready-to-use kit – is specifically designed for use in primary health care settings and is instantly ready for operation, providing immediate test results.
