High sensitive CRP test
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.
A growing number of studies have examined that a more sensitive test, the so called hsCRP (high sensitive CRP), can predict recurrent cardiovascular disease, stroke and even death in different settings. High levels of hsCRP consistently predict recurrent coronary events in patients with unstable angina and acute myocardial infarction (heart attack). Higher hsCRP levels also are associated with lower survival rates in these patients.
The Eurolyser hsCRP (high sensitive CRP) assay faciliates the determination of CRP levels with remarkable speed and precision.
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.
This test is an immunoturbidimetric assay with two ranges:
Serum / Plasma:
0.25 – 20 mg/l
0.50 – 20 mg/l
Test duration takes approx. 3 minutes measuring serum, approx. 4 minutes measuring whole blood.

Please note: depending on the time of the market launch of an assay, the respective assay evaluation was carried out using either a Eurolyser smart instrument or a Eurolyser CUBE instrument.
Since the measurement method is the same in both instruments (their photometric units are identical in construction), as was proved in this comparison study, all testkit evaluations provided on this website are valid for either instrument!
