Webinar: Calprotectin in sepsis

In relation to World Sepsis Day  and Sepsis Awareness Month we have decided to make a webinar on the biomarker calprotectin’s role in the assessment of sepsis. Sepsis arises when the body’s response to an infection injures its own tissues and organs. If not recognised in an early phase and treated quickly, sepsis can lead to shock, multi-organ failure, and death1. Rapid and correct diagnosis is very important, as any delay in treatment increases mortality. Biomarkers can help in detection of sepsis, and here calprotectin has shown to be a very promising early biomarker.

There are several recent studies which support calprotectin as a promising biomarker in sepsis2-6. In this webinar Gentian’s Product Manager for GCAL® Calprotectin Immunoassay, for plasma and serum, will present selected research on calprotectin and sepsis. Please watch the webinar here:
