POCT/rapid Tests

IB10 sphingotest® penKid®

SphingoTec GmbH

IB10 sphingotest® penKid® measures Proenkephalin (penKid®), a stable fragment of the kidney stimulating hormone Enkephalin. penKid® has been demonstrated to be a real-time surrogate biomarker for glomerular filtration rate, the gold standard to assess renal function. Measuring penKid® blood concentrations allows for timely information on kidney function in critically ill patients. Early assessment of worsening and improving of renal function on intensive care units and in emergency departments allows adjustment of nephrotoxic drug administration and the initiation of kidney-protective strategies to prevent acute kidney injury and thereby improve outcomes.
