    Clinic­ally proven

    In a prospective clinical study of 123 patients at a leading US Hospital system using the MSIS-13 criteria as comparator, the Lyfstone Calprotectin test showed excellent sensitivity (98.1%) and specificity (95.7%). The calprotectin test outperformed blood-based PJI diagnostic tests such as CRP and ESR, confirming its diagnostic utility.

    Clear and reliable risk indicators

    The lateral flow rapid test is combined with the Lyfstone app to give an exact quantitative measurement of the level of calprotectin in Synovial fluid. Just hold the smartphone above the sample and align the screen layout with the support frame. The calprotectin concentration and the risk stratification group of the sample is displayed on the screen.
    • LOW risk of infection – CLP levels <14 mg/L
    • MODERATE risk of infection – CLP levels 14<50 mg/L
    • HIGH risk of infection – CLP levels ≥50 mg/L
