Quantum Blue CRP allows determination of serum CRP within 22 minutes. It is an ideal tool to accompany the calprotectin determination for establishing an Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) patient inflammation profile during the course of the disease. The combination of these two markers has shown to increase the specificity for detecting inflammation in Crohn’s disease.

MRP8/14 is an early and sensitive inflammation marker. It is released immediately in response to local inflammation. In contrast, other inflammatory markers are generated by downstream pathways and require de novo synthesis. Therefore, MRP8/14 is an ideal target for monitoring disease activity of Rheumatoid Arthritis. The assays allow for precise and sensitive measurement of this important marker.

Therapeutic Drug Monitoring (TDM)

Quantum Blue® Infliximab This biologic drug is a therapeutic monoclonal antibody. It acts as an antagonist to TNF alpha, thus effectively blocks the inflammatory process in numerous chronic inflammatory diseases like Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and inflammatory arthritis. It is the first rapid test to measure infliximab trough levels in patient’s serum to allow immediate decision making for potential drug dose adjustments.
