Rapid latex agglutination test for the qualitative screening and semi-quantitative determination of C-reactive protein (CRP) in serum.

Liquid ready-to-use reagents
CRP reagent comes in a liquid format which is more convenient, and can also help reduce the risk of misdiagnosis

In comparing CRP tests, it must be remembered that the different techniques vary in sensitivity. The latex agglutination technique is more sensitive than precipitation in capillary tubes or in agar gel and gives positive results at lower CRP concentrations. For this reason the latex agglutination test usually gives a higher percentage of positive results than the other methods.
Expressed in absolute terms, the amount of C-reactive protein in serum from patients with strongly positive CRP reactions is given by different workers as 33 mg/dl or 14 mg/dl while the content of normal serum is less than 6 mg/dl.
