I am a returning customer
I want this for my family

Product Description

Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate is the rate at which red blood cells sediment in a period of one hour. An abnormal result gives an indication in to a wide range of disorders but is not a confirmatory test for any condition. Hence it is widely used as a non-specific routine test. Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate is a routine non-specific test that gives a general indication of one’s health and is never used as a confirmatory test for any condition.

Advantages of calculating ESR are :

  • Quick turnaround time
  • It can rule out or indicate a presence of certain disorders
  • It helps the doctor in further diagnosis

The erythrocyte sedimentation rate is a relatively simple, inexpensive, non-specific test that has been used for many years to help detect inflammation associated with conditions such as infections, cancers, and autoimmune diseases.
