QuikRead CRP test is intended for quantitative measurement of C-reactive protein (CRP) in whole blood, plasma and serum samples with the QuikRead 101 instrument. This simple and robust system gives reproducible results in just a few minutes.
Measurement of CRP can be helpful in the clinical management of a patient with infection symptoms. CRP is normally present in low concentrations in the blood of healthy people. CRP concentrations are markedly increased in the event of bacterial infection, whereas viral infections normally induce only a modest elevation or no elevation at all.
QuikRead CRP is a simple test for quantitative measurement of CRP. The system - consisting of a small instrument and a ready-to-use kit - is designed for use in primary healthcare settings. When the test is performed near the patient, the result is available during patient consultation and can, therefore, guide antibiotic use.
QuikRead CRP provides you with
- As accurate as a laboratory test
- Reproducible CRP result within 8 - 160 mg/l range
- Result available when needed - in less than 3 minutes
Ease of use
- The system is easy to operate, even by non-laboratory personnel
- Performed on a finger prick blood sample (alternatively serum or plasma sample)
- Built-in calibration
Test results should never be used alone, without a complete clinical evaluation.

Frequently asked questions
The QuikRead instrument gives me a result of > 160 mg/l, but I would like to get an exact CRP result. Is it possible?
When using plasma/serum samples you can dilute the sample with 0.9% NaCl before adding it to the cuvette. The recommended dilution is 1+1. Remember to multiply the result by 2.
I accidentally left a QuikRead CRP kit at room temperature for a weekend. Can I still use it?
Yes, you can use the kit. The kit can be stored at room temperature (18 - 25 °C) for one month. When used at room temperature during daily working hours (7.5 hours) and stored at +2 - +8 °C after finishing, the kit will remain stable for 3 months.
I have used a 20 µl sample volume for plasma patient samples. Is the result I get the final result?
No, when using a 20 µl plasma volume, the result should be multiplied by 0.6. When using a 12 µl plasma or serum volume, the result can be directly read from the screen and no additional calculations are needed.
