The IB10 sphingotest® NT proBNP, is a rapid test for the in vitro quantitative determination of N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) in human whole blood or plasma using EDTA or lithium heparin as the anticoagulant.

The NT-proBNP Test is intended for use in conjunction with the Nexus IB10 Analyzer and provides quantitative results in 20 minutes. This Test is designed for professional use only and may be used in hospital central laboratories and in alternate care settings such as emergency departments, critical care units, and other sites where near patient testing is practiced. NT-proBNP determinations aid in the diagnosis and management of Congestive Heart Failure (CHF).
