C-Reactive Protein (CRP) Latex Agglutination Test
C-reactive proteins (CRP) are one of the non-specific acute phase proteins that are produced from the liver cells as a response to tissue damage, infection, and inflammation. In clinical laboratories, CRP is measured as an indicator of active infection, chronic inflammatory diseases, and in some cases as a risk predictor for cardiovascular diseases. In this chapter, the principle, applications, reagents, steps, and results interpretation for the most commonly used test in serology for detecting CRP are explained.
