Webinar: The clinical value of cystatin C, by Dr. E. Sundrehagen, CSO

Cystatin C is a superior glomerular filtration rate (GFR) marker for the diagnosis and therapeutic control of renal function, as a reduction in the GFR causes a rise in the concentration of cystatin C. In this webinar Dr. Erling Sundrehagen, the co-founder of Gentian and the company’s CSO, will elaborate on the following topics:

  • Determining Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR)
  • The history of cystatin C
  • Properties of cystatin C and its clinical value
  • Interference and avian antibodies
  • The benefits of the Gentian Cystatin C immunoassay
  • Cystatin C in addition to creatinine
