The clinical value of cystatin C in diagnosis and treatment of renal diseases


  • Cystatin C is a superior glomerular filtration rate (GFR) marker for the diagnosis and therapeutic control of renal function [1]
  • The marker is independent of protein intake, gender, ethnicity, age* and muscle mass [2-5]
  • Cystatin C is recommended by KDIGO and NICE [2,3]
*Not cleared for use in pediatric patients in the USA

 

Why Gentian Cystatin C Immunoassay?

  • The Gentian Cystatin C Immunoassay (ERM-DA471/IFCC standardised) is an in vitro diagnostic test for quantitative determination of cystatin C in human serum and plasma
  • FDA510 (k) cleared and CE-marked
  • Avoids interference with rheumatoid factor [6
  • The immunoassay is available for a wide range of clinical analysers with documented high inter instrument accuracy [7]
