Welcome to the Pentracor GmbH

Pentracor is a medical device company that has developed a breakthrough innovation for the treatment of acute myocardial infarction. Our first product on the German market is PentraSorb® CRP and has attracted much attention since the completion of a landmark clinical trial. Pentracor has a research and development pipeline in several therapeutic areas based on our unique expertise in immunology.

In heart attack and stroke, the C-reactive protein (CRP) leads to an increase of the primary damage. Further, the severity of rheumatic diseases is often determined by the amount of CRP.

The CRP adsorber (PentraSorb® CRP) is CE-marked. The corresponding Quality management system certificate according to EN ISO 13485 and the EC Certificate of Conformity in accordance with Directive 93/42/EEC are available.

PentraSorb® CRP

Since November 2014 Pentracor GmbH is responsible and certified for the production and distribution of CRP adsorbers according to EN ISO 13485. The PentraSorb® CRP is an adsorber for the selective depletion of C-reactive protein (CRP).

CRP Adsorber

In the case of organ damage (e.g. heart attack or stroke), CRP marks cells capable of regeneration, which are then eliminated by the immune system. This increases the primary damage.

With the help of the PentraSorb® CRP can be removed from the blood with the aim of reducing this damage.

CRP apheresis

In CRP apheresis, CRP is selectively removed from the patient's blood plasma.

The application of PentraSorb® CRP is comparable to dialysis and can be performed in an outpatient or inpatient setting.

During the treatment, blood plasma is passed through the PentraSorb® CRP, which then selectively removes CRP from it.
