i-Chroma Cystatin C

The level of serum Cystatin C has been proposed as a simple, accurate, and rapid endogenous marker of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in research and clinical practice. The measurement of serum Cystatin C may detect mild to moderate decrease in GFR that are not evident with the serum Creatinine measurement.In kidney transplant patients, Cystatin C was reported to be more sensitive than serum Creatinine for detecting decreases in GFR and delayed graft function, offering an opportunity for timely intervention.
