Webinar: The biomarker calprotectin - for plasma and serum

Biomarker for early detection of the inflammatory response to infections

Calprotectin is one of the earliest biomarkers for detection of the inflammatory response to infections1,2. The biomarker is predominantly expressed in neutrophil granulocytes, and it is released upon neutrophil activation in response to inflammation and infection. 

Calprotectin in plasma and serum can be a valuable biomarker in different areas:

  • discrimination between bacterial and viral infection3 
  • assessment of severe infections and sepsis2,4,5
  • prediction for development of severe infections6
  • a risk marker in severe COVID-197,8
  • for non-infectious inflammatory diseases, like rheumatic diseases9
