Clinical Background

Lumipulse G BRAHMS PCTProcalcitonin (PCT) is a biomarker used for the diagnosis of bacterial infection and sepsis. The use of PCT has increased in clinical practice for improved patient management, in a variety of settings including primary care, emergency room (ER) and intensive care units (ICU).

PCT has advantages over other biomarkers for sepsis, such as C-Reactive Protein (CRP) and white blood cell count:

  • Specificity for bacterial infection (versus inflammation in general).
  • Rapidity of rise after an insult (6 hrs).
  • Rapid decline on infection with immune control (half-life of 24 hrs).
  • Excellent correlation with severity of illness.
