Interpretation of the Results
The C-Reactive Protein Home Test is semi-quantitative. Results are interpreted visually and enable the classification of CRP concentration in one of four ranges.
CRP level is lower than 8 mg/L: This result means that there is neither infection nor inflammation.
CRP level is in the range of 8 to 40 mg/L: There could be some inflammatory process in your body. You should consult your doctor for further investigation.
CRP level is in the range of 40 to 100 mg/L: There is probably viral or bacterial infection developing in your body. You must consult your doctor.
CRP level higher than 100 mg/L: There might be severe inflammation or infection in your body. You need to consult your doctor urgently.
Important: Besides infections, there might be other conditions causing inflammation in your body. You should always consult your doctor and interpret results in the light of other relevant symptoms.

Yes, the colour intensity of the test lines is essential for the interpretation of the result. Based on the colour intensity of test lines, you determine C-Reactive Protein concentration in the blood.
Our CRP test is semi-quantitative. It will not show the exact concentration of C-Reactive Protein in your body, but it will show the range in which your CRP levels is.
Results are classified into four ranges:
CRP concentration is lower than 8 mg/L.
CRP concentration is in the range of 8 to 40 mg/L.
CRP concentration is in the range of 40 to 100 mg/L.
CRP concentration is higher than 100 mg/L.
