Ortho Clinical Diagnostics Interleukin-6 Reagent Pack

Ortho Clinical Diagnostics launched its Vitros Immunodiagnostic Products IL-6 Reagent Pack in the UK and countries in the European Union and Asia Pacific and Latin America regions.

Results from Ortho's IL-6 assay can be used to help healthcare teams detect and evaluate inflammatory diseases, including autoimmune disorders, sepsis, cases of severe respiratory infections from COVID-19, and community-acquired pneumonia in critically ill patients.

Ortho said its new IL-6 assay offers earlier detection of inflammation than c-reactive protein and is a cost-effective diagnostic complement to procalcitonin testing, both of which help monitor the body's inflammatory response in severely ill patients.
