Gentian at NKF SCM20 – Booth #233 

We look forward to exhibiting at Spring Clinical Meetings 2020 and we hope to see you in New Orleans from March 26th to 28th to discuss cystatin Ckidney health and chronic kidney diseases (CKD). 

Chronic kidney disease care 

An important objective of SCM20 is to present the latest insights into chronic kidney disease care. Cystatin C is a superior prognostic and diagnostic marker for assessment of glomerular filtration rate (GFR). The marker is independent of protein intake, gender, ethnicity, age* and muscle mass [1-4]. 


Visit us at booth #233 

At booth #233 you will meet our Product Manager for cystatin C and our US Product Specialist. They will tell you more about our cystatin C immunoassay and cystatin C in the clinical settings, and can answer all your questions.

The Gentian Cystatin C Immunoassay is used on a wide range of clinical chemistry analysers with documented high inter instrument accuracy [5]. 


Have you watched the webinar about kidney biomarkers by Professor Grubb yet? 

In the AACC webinar “The Use of Biomarkers in Chronic Kidney Disease and the Novel Disorder Shrunken Pore Syndrome (SPS) Dr. Grubb talks about cystatin C and SPS and discusses the use of biomarkers to estimate GFR showing the clinical value cystatin C can have in renal diagnostics. The webinar gives 1.0 ACCENT Credits.
