CD14 is expressed in monocytes/macrophages and has a critical role in the recognition of bacterial cell wall components (LPS). The extracellular part of CD14 can be cleaved and released in the plasma. There it will inactivate circulating LPS.
Serum soluble CD14 levels are significantly elevated in patients with inflammatory bowel disease and Crohn's disease. In patients suffering from Brucellosis or Lyme disease these levels are significantly elevated too.
Do I need to prepay the test before receiving the kit?
No, we will send you an invoice once we receive your sample. All payment instructions are listed on the invoice. You can pay by wire transfer or credit card (VISA or Mastercard only). Please kindly note that checks are no longer accepted. The analysis report will be released only if the tests are paid.
What is the turnaround time for the tests?
Testing turnaround time is assay-dependent. Some results are available in 48h (like CD57 count, Phagotest, etc.), while some others need more time (like PCRs with sequencing confirmation). The results of analyses are delivered maximum 6 weeks after sample reception.
