EKF PCT Assay FDA cleared & validated for Beckman analyzersUser defined application available on Beckman AU clinical chemistry analyzers
EKF Diagnostics, the global in vitro diagnostics company, announces that its Stanbio Chemistry Procalcitonin (PCT) LiquiColor® assay* has been FDA cleared and validated for use on Beckman AU 480, 680 and 5800 clinical chemistry analyzers. EKF is pleased to confirm the immediate availability of a user defined application (UDA) for running this 10 minute test for bacterial infection and sepsis on these Beckman AU analyzers.
PCT is a widely accepted marker for use in conjunction with other tests to quickly identify sepsis and monitor progression/severity over time. EKF’s PCT test is designed to be used on an open channel of most main brand clinical chemistry analyzers, including Roche Cobas, Abbott Architect and Hitachi systems. Therefore, the availability of the User Defined Application (UDA) on Beckman AU analyzers further increases the breadth of application of the LiquiColor PCT assay.
