The role of calprotectin in COVID-19
Clinical studies report increased levels of calprotectin in patients with severe SARS-CoV-2 infection, as well as identifying the ability of calprotectin to differentiate between mild and severe forms of the disease and its capability to predict the need for mechanical ventilation and mortality1-6. This is valuable information that can help hospitals to better allocate essential resources that are often in limited supply.
In this webinar Gentian's VP Clinical Affairs Dr Aleksandra Havelka will give an introduction to the biomarker calprotectin in relation to severe COVID-19 and the hyper-inflammatory response, before she will go through several clinical studies discussing the value of calprotectin in COVID-19.
GCAL® - Gentian's calprotectin immunoassay - early access to results
Calprotectin has potential applications for early detection and monitoring of sepsis.Gentian’s Calprotectin Immunoassay GCAL®is a Particle-Enhanced Turbidimetric Immunoassay (PETIA), and is therefore rapidly performed in only 10 minutes, making it extra beneficial when it is critical to get fast access to the results.
