CRP including hsCRP

Immunoassay parameters are provided in the following programmes: Endocrine, Haematinics, Cardiac Markers, BNP, NT-ProBNP and CRP (including hsCRP).

CRP (including hsCRP)
C-Reactive Protein (CRP) is a well established marker for inflammation but more recently high sensitivity CRP (hsCRP) is being used as a marker for risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Weqas launched this programme as a pilot for hsCRP in April 2011. The EQA programme design now incorporates analytical ranges for both CRP and hsCRP. Four commutable samples covering both high sensitivity (hs) and standard CRP assay ranges are distributed each month.

Frequency: Monthly

Samples per set: 3 x 0.5mL samples
