Diagnostic Efficiency: Newsletter July 2021

We are happy to announce that Gentian will be exhibiting at the AACC in Atlanta this September and at EUROMEDLAB in Munich at the end of November. We hope to see you there!

It has been quite an eventful quarter. Gentian has recently been listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange and has also been preparing to celebrate 20 years of innovating diagnostic efficiency.

If you have not yet had a chance to watch the American Kidney Fund Webinar Cystatin C: Its utility as an alternative for creatinine-based eGFR it is still available on YouTube and can be accessed through the link below. We have also launched a webinar on the role of plasma and serum calprotectin in the assessment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), that we hope you will find interesting.

If you have any questions about Gentian or our products, please feel free to email us.

FREE WEBINAR: Cystatin C: Its utility as an alternative for creatinine-based eGFR

Gentian is a proud sponsor of the American Kidney Fund (AKF) webinar Cystatin C: Its utility as an alternative for creatinine-based eGFR. During this interactive webinar, a multidiscipline panel of experts will delve into the utility of the cystatin C test in diagnosing kidney disease. Measurement of serum cystatin C continue to gain a greater role in the estimation of kidney function, especially with growing scrutiny of the inclusion of race modifiers in the creatinine-based eGFR equation.


Take the opportunity to watch the AKF webinar about cystatin C as an alternative to creatinine based e-GFR.

WEBINAR: The role of calprotectin in RA

This webinar looks into the role plasma and serum calprotectin plays in the assessment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). As calprotectin is a biomarker for neutrophil activation, it can be used to detect and assess the inflammation activity and severity.

Gentian Diagnostics listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange

As the growing diagnostics market puts increasing pressure on clinical laboratory efficiency,  many of the existing, clinically relevant biomarkers are still only available on slow and inefficient platforms. Gentian’s solution is to utilise PETIA (Particle-Enhanced Turbidimetric Immunoassays), based on proprietary nanoparticle technology and knowhow, to convert existing biomarkers to the most efficient automated, high-throughput analysers.

You can learn more about Gentian by watching the  bell ceremony and our company movie below.
