IB10 sphingotest® Troponin-99
The IB10 sphingotest® Troponin-99, is a rapid point-of-care (POC) immunoassay for the in vitro quantitative determination of Cardiac Troponin-99 (cTnI) in lithium heparin whole blood and plasma. The Troponin-99 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. cTnI determinations aid in the diagnosis of myocardial infarction (MI) and patients with non-ST-segment elevation (NSTEMI) acute coronary syndromes (ACS). Elevated cTnI levels in the NSTEMI ACS subpopulation correlate with the relative risk of mortality, MI or increased probability of ischemic events, requiring urgent revascularization procedures.
