Samples and controls for your research and development
We offer various samples for sepsis research, including single donations (panels and bulks) for the validation of test systems. Furthermore, we produce pools and controls. These are mainly used for external and internal quality control (e.g. proficiency testing). For this purpose, a selection of standard products with various biomarkers such as C-reactive protein (CRP) and Procalcitonin (PCT) is available.
The in.vent products are for research or manufacturing purposes only and are therefore not intended for direct therapeutic or diagnostic use in humans or animals. Furthermore, we follow the highest ethical standards in the procurement of samples. If you have any questions in this regard, please do not hesitate to contact us!
Why is research into sepsis important?
Sepsis is a life-threatening reaction of the body to infections. These can lead to tissue damage, organ failure and ultimately death. Sepsis occurs when the body’s own defence reactions damage its own tissues and organs. It can be triggered by bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. Sepsis is often caused by pneumonia and infections of the gastrointestinal tract. But infections of skin and soft tissue can also be the cause. Every year, around 6 million people die of sepsis worldwide. This makes sepsis the third most common cause of death.
Our Portfolio includes the following biomarkers
- C-reaktive Protein (CRP)
- Procalcitonin (PCT)
Composition and documentation of the SEpsis samples
Our samples consist of native human bio-material without additives. All titres are based on current availability. In addition, we provide detailed information for each product, including: titer, volume, matrix, shelf life, test kit and test manufacturer. For single donors, we also add information such as age, gender of the donor and the measured laboratory result.
Furthermore, you have the possibility to send us individual enquiries regarding matrix, volume and biomarker. Our Inquiry Form is available for this purpose.
