Cystatin C - New improved and standardized Dako assay

The new Dako Cystatin C assay is standardized against the international Cystatin C reference material, ERM-DA471/IFCC and will play an instrumental role in the development of a standardized GFR-prediction equation, being one of the few assays chosen to deliver data to the IFCC Working Group for Standardization of Cystatin C (WG-SCC). The new Dako Cystatin C assay has an improved imprecision profile throughout the entire measuring range, including the low-end range. This is of particular importance when managing patients who are sensitive to small deviations in GFR such as renal-transplant patients.
