Anti-CCP is the marker of choice among rheumatologists for aid in the serological diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). For over 15 years Axis-Shield has been a major pioneer developing this marker on a number of different technologies and is now making available the first anti-CCP test designed for use on open clinical chemistry systems. With excellent clinical specificity and sensitivity for patients with RA, results can be received in 10 minutes. This latex-enhanced immunoturbidimetric test is suitable for use with either serum or plasma. This methodology will allow laboratories to consolidate their testing along with other acute phase reactants and serological markers associated with rheumatic diseases. Each reagent pack supplied has 100 tests. Controls and calibrators are available separately.
