B·R·A·H·M·S PCT direct provides reliable PCT results to support an early diagnosis of bacterial infections.
Clinically relevant bacterial infections can rapidly progress to severe sepsis and septic shock if not treated appropriately within a short time.1
Therefore it is important to detect infections as early as possible. Procalcitonin (PCT) is considered a reliable and specific biomarker to aid in the early diagnosis of clinically relevant bacterial infections.2,3
B·R·A·H·M·S PCT direct provides reliable PCT test results at the point of care, 24/7, and can aid in:
- confirming or challenging the initial suspicion of bacterial infection, allowing the identification of patients that benefit from antibiotic treatment4
- assessing the severity and the prognosis of the outcome of bacterial infection or sepsis4, enabling quick and appropriate patient management5,6
