Procalcitonin (PCT) is a biomarker elevated in the blood of patients suffering from sepsis. Physicians use PCT to distinguish bacterial sepsis from other causes of similar symptoms.

RAMP Procalcitonin provides quantitative results in ~15 minutes directly from a small blood sample. When speed, precision and accuracy are critical, the RAMP Procalcitonin test provides clinicians the results they need for making informed patient management decisions.

THE CHALLENGE

WHEN EARLY RECOGNITION OF SEPSIS IS KEY

  • Sepsis is a global health crisis with more than 30 million cases annually worldwide
  • Early detection and treatment of sepsis has been proven to improve patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs
  • One-third of ICU patients with sepsis die before leaving the hospital
  • Sepsis is one of the most expensive conditions to treat, with costs exceeding $20 billion USD annually in the US alone

THE SOLUTION

RAMP PROCALCITONIN TEST

  • Procalcitonin(PCT) is a sensitive biomarker elevated in the blood of patients suffering from sepsis. Physicians use PCT to distinguish bacterial sepsis from other causes of similar symptoms
  • RAMP Procalcitonin provides quantitative results in ~15 minutes directly from a small blood sample.

When speed, precision and accuracy are critical, the RAMP Procalcitonin test provides clinicians the results they need for making informed patient management decisions
