The liquid ready to use High Sensitivity CRP Assay from Randox provides an excellent marker of cardiovascular disease risk. The assay is based on an immunoturbidimetric method and is suitable for use on a wide range of chemistry analyzers.
High Sensitivity CRP (hsCRP) is a useful biomarker in the prediction of future cardiac events in individuals with no previous history of cardiovascular disease. It is thought that healthy individuals with CRP levels higher than 3mg/l are 2 to 4 times more likely to have a heart attack or stroke. Approximately half of all heart attacks occur in patients who have a normal lipid profile and are classified as low risk based on traditional methods of risk estimation. The measurement of hsCRP can therefore help clinicians to identify these individuals earlier; it can also be used to evaluate the risk of a recurrent cardiac event.
