C-reactive protein quantitative blood test is done to measure the amount of C-reactive protein in the blood. This helps to identify the presence of an inflammatory disease or disorder.
What is C- REACTIVE PROTEIN QUANTITATIVE TEST?
C-reactive protein is a blood marker for any inflammation in the body. It is produced in the liver. C-reactive is not produced in the body unless there is an inflammation. Thus C-reactive protein quantitative test provides definite proof of any inflammation.
Why is C-REACTIVE PROTEIN QUANTITATIVE TEST suggested?

How is C- REACTIVE PROTEIN QUANTITATIVE TEST performed?
C-reactive protein quantitative test is performed as follows:
- A blood sample is taken from the vein of the patient.
- Sample taken to the lab and analyzed.

What are the parameters measured in C-REACTIVE PROTEIN QUANTITATIVE TEST?
C-reactive protein quantitative test measures the amount of CRP in the blood, this protein is not present unless there is an inflammation. The various concentrations in which the protein is present gives an indication of the degree of inflammation, eg a CRP level of more than 10 mg/l is seen in stroke or heart attack.
