Thermo Scientific will be exhibiting at the 33rd ISICEM in Brussels and will be presenting its procalcitonin (PCT) biomarker. Early identification of sepsis is crucial to improving patient outcomes. Yet sepsis can be difficult to differentiate from nonbacterial infections. Procalcitonin (PCT) is a biomarker that exhibits a rapid, clinically significant response to severe bacterial infection. In patients with sepsis, PCT levels increase in correlation to the severity of the infection. Adding the PCT biomarker assay can help improve the accuracy of risk assessment in sepsis and guide therapeutic decisions.
