We have also collected frequently asked question we get about calprotectin like "What role can plasma & serum calprotectin play in severe COVID-19?" and "What type of assay is the Gentian Calprotectin Immunoassay GCAL®?"

If you need more information or have any questions related to products, distribution or sales you are always welcome to contact us at marketing@gentian.com.

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.


The panellists are Josef Coresh, MD, PhD from Johns Hopkins University, Michelle Estrella, MD, MHS and Michael Shlipak, MD, MPH from University of California - San Francisco and Amy Karger, MD, PhD from University of Minnesota, and the webinar is moderated by Silas Norman, MD, MPH from University of Michigan.

 

WEBINAR: The role of calprotectin in COVID-19

In this webinar Gentian's VP Clinical Affairs Dr Aleksandra Havelka gives an introduction to the biomarker calprotectin in relation to severe COVID-19 and the hyper-inflammatory response, before she will go through several clinical studies discussing the value of calprotectin in COVID-19.
