Cystatin C at AACC

Gentian launched its turbidimetric cystatin C immunoassay in 2006, and the assay has been FDA510(k) cleared since 2008.

Cystatin C is widely recognised as a reliable marker for estimating glomerular filtration rate (GFR). GFR calculations performed using cystatin C are independent of factors such as protein intake, muscle mass and race1-4. This means that cystatin C testing can help ensure an unbiased assessment of renal function, which is central to the diagnosis and management of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Clinical use of the biomarker has been recommended in guidelines published by Kidney Disease: improving Global outcomes (KDIGO)4.

Gentian Cystatin C Immunoassay :

  • Particle-Enhanced Turbidimetric Immunoassay
  • With avian antibodies for reduced interference 
  • Can be applied on most automated platforms
  • ERM-DA471/IFCC standardised
  • FDA510 (k) cleared and CE-marked
