Human CRP FRET-PINCER® Assay Kit, 96 well format


Clear selection


This assay is ideal for the rapid screening and quantification of human C-Reactive Protein (hCRP) in biological samples.

Human C-Reactive Protein (hCRP) is a calcium-dependent ligand-binding plasma protein, which is composed of five identical nonglycosylated polypeptide subunits (M.W.=23,027), each containing 206 amino acid residues. The monomers are noncovalently associated in an annular configuration with cyclic pentameric symmetry. CRP is mainly produced by the liver and CRP concentration is a very useful nonspecific biochemical marker of inflammation. In healthy young adult volunteer donors, the median concentration of CRP in blood is 0.8 mg/L, however, during acute-phase inflammation, values may increase to more than 500 mg/L. High plasma concentration of CRP is also associated with increased risk of stroke, myocardial infarction, and other vascular diseases.


Product Applications

  1. Detect and Quantify CRP in biological samples

The FRET-PINCER® assay is ideally suited for the rapid, simultaneous measurement of human CRP levels in large numbers of test samples due to its speed and simplicity. It is readily adaptable to the high-throughput screening platforms currently being used in drug discovery research. In comparison to the ELISA procedure, the PINCER® assay is:

  • Easy
    Mix test sample or standard with the assay solution and incubate at ~25°C

  • Fast
    Read fluorescent signal after 30 minutes of incubation

  • Sensitive
    Assay measures hCRP with an LOD of 6.25 ng/mL.

  • Flexible
    Assay is adaptable to both low- and high-throughput screening formats
