RHELAX CRP KITCRP Latex Test Kit Serology test
C-Reactive Protein (CRP), the classic acute-phase of human serum, is synthesized by hepatocytes. Normally, it is present only in trace amounts in serum, but it can increase by as much as l000-fold in response to injury or infection. The clinical measurement of CRP in serum, therefore, appears to be a valuable screening test for organic disease and a sensitive index of disease activity in inflammatory, infective, and ischemic conditions. 1,2 MacLeod and Avery found that antibody produced against purified CRP provided a more sensitive test than the C-polysaccharide assay. 3 Since that time a number of immunological assays have been devised to measure CRP such as capillary precipitation, double immunodiffusion, and radical immunodiffusion. 4,5C-Reactive Protein (CRP) latex slide test Serology kit is used for the qualitative and semi-quantitative measurement of C-reactive protein (CRP) in human serum.
