IB10 sphingotest® DPP3
IB10 sphingotest® DPP3 (Human Dipeptidyl Peptidase 3), is a rapid point-of-care (POC) immunoassay for the in vitro quantitative determination of Dipeptidyl peptidase 3 an active enzyme which, when released into the blood, inactivates angiotensin II, a hormone that is important for the heart function. This inactivation is leading to hemodynamic instability and consequently cardiac depression. The DPP3 release is a newly identified pathway explaining short-term organ failure in critically ill patients. Early identification of DPP3 release may allow better patient stratification and earlier therapy escalation to improve outcomes.
The IB10 sphingotest® DPP3 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.
