Radiometer Medical

September 13 is World Sepsis Day. Sepsis is a serious and potentially life-threatening condition. There are more cases of sepsis than of lung-, breast-, prostate cancer, and HIV combined.

Procalcitonin (PCT), the biomarker of choice to aid in the diagnosis of sepsis

PCT, normally present in the blood at a very low level, and is released in larger amounts in response to an infection, thereby acts as a risk indicator for sepsis. With a negative predictive value above 95 percent, procalcitonin is widely acknowledged as the most sensitive biomarker to aid in the diagnosis of bacterial sepsis2.

The added value of point-of-care testing
Despite strict guidelines for the implementation of early and effective therapies, which have improved the chance of survival, the mortality and morbidity rates associated with sepsis remain higher than any other infection-related condition.

Radiometer has developed the easy-to-use, point-of-care AQT90 FLEX PCT assay, an important aid to timely diagnose sepsis. Radiometer’s rapid, acute care AQT90 FLEX PCT test, an in vitro diagnostic assay for the quantitative determination of PCT in EDTA or lithium-heparin whole blood or plasma specimens, is an important tool for acute and intensive care professionals, aiding the detection of sepsis. This enables clinicians to start antibiotic treatment undelayed.

When PCT levels are elevated and sepsis is suspected but not confirmed, antibiotic treatment should be considered after first having drawn a blood sample to identify the presence of any blood-borne microorganisms. Typically, this will involve blood culture, a time-consuming procedure that may take several days and often does not reflect systemic inflammation or the onset of organ failure. In contrast, Radiometer’s AQT90 FLEX PCT assay delivers results in less than 21 minutes, enabling clinicians to swiftly optimize the patient’s treatment.

Key benefits of the AQT90 FLEX procalcitonin assay include:

  • Laboratory quality, quantitative determination of PCT at the point of care;
  • Results available in less than 21 minutes;
  • Improved sample turnaround times;
  • Suitable for whole blood–no pre-handling required–or plasma samples;
  • Excellent agreement with blood culture; and
  • High correlation with other commercially available PCT assays.


ErbaLisa COVID-19 IgG ELISA test kits
Transasia Bio-Medicals Ltd.

Critical use of serology tests
While RT-PCR and antigen tests assess the viral load in infected patients; there is a large population that remain asymptomatic and hence undiagnosed. Serology testing for COVID-19 helps in identifying such individuals. Thus, RT-PCR and antibody tests are both essential but not interchangeable.

Various studies have indicated that in India there is a significantly large population that is asymptomatic. This has led to the speculation about whether or not these people can further transmit the virus. Obviously, this can be dangerous for India in the long run, in the absence of enough tests.

Implications for policy decisions
ICMR has recognized antibody ELISA testing for a scientific approach to make informed public health decisions and getting back to normal strategy.

While tracking the pandemic’s trajectory, antibody testing can help the policy makers determine whether the curve is flattening or not. This is important to strategize reigniting of the economy.

Most importantly, once a vaccine is ready, antibody tests can help the government identify vulnerable population who have not developed antibodies and going further, to know if the vaccine has been effective in that area.

Choosing the right antibody test
The most important criterion is the sensitivity and specificity of the assay. A test with a sensitivity and specificity of 99 percent or more minimizes the chances of false results and is an accurate indicator.

Batch-to-batch consistency of the kit is another important criterion that the ICMR is considering, to approve only kits that give high quality results. This helps in maintaining proper reported data crucial for epidemiological studies.

A kit with a simplified protocol and minimum steps greatly helps in saving time and reducing manual errors. Ready-to-use reagents do not require reconstitution and dilution and thus make the kit user-friendly.

Laboratories prefer ELISA kits that are automation-friendly to reduce the burden on technicians, allowing for large volumes of screening with consistent precision.

Transasia Bio-Medicals Ltd. is proud to introduce its Made In India ErbaLisa COVID-19 IgG ELISA test kits with a proven sensitivity and specificity of >99 percent. The kit has been evaluated by National AIDS Research Institute (NARI), Pune and approved by Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). It offers a simplified protocol with in-well dilution and ready-to-use reagents and is automation-friendly.
