COVID-19 interleukin-6 test
The rapid interleukin-6 test kits from AFIAS are optimized for on-site diagnosis with high accuracy
Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is an early biomarker for acute inflammation to assist in the caring of critically ill patients or for identifying severe inflammatory response in patients with confirmed COVID-19. It is useful as an aid in management and monitoring of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) inflammatory responses. This test is compatible with the AFIAS-1 and AFIAS-6 immunoassay systems.
* For in vitro diagnostic use only.
