C-Reactive Protein (CRP) Semi-Quantitative Rapid Detection Kit

C-Reactive Protein (CRP) is a marker of acute phase response to inflammatory disorder. A high level of CRP in the blood is a sign that there may be an inflammatory process occurring in the body. CRP measurements have been used for many years in the management of a variety of clinical situations, such as bacterial infections, ischemic necrosis of tissue, and active inflammatory conditions. Recent studies suggest that CRP is a strong predictor of future coronary events in apparently healthy subjects and a prognostic value in patients with acute coronary syndromes.
