IB10 sphingotest® Shortness of Breath

IB10 sphingotest® SOB

IB10 sphingotest® SOB (Shortness of Breath), is a rapid point-of-care (POC) immunoassay for the in vitro quantitative determination of Cardiac Troponin I (cTnI), N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) and D-Dimer in lithium heparin human whole blood and plasma. The IB10 sphingotest SOB is intended for use in conjunction with the Nexus IB10 Analyzer and provides quantitative results in 20 minutes.

The SOB (Shortness of Breath) test panel is intended as an aid in the differential diagnosis and prognostic assessment of patients with symptoms of chest pain, typically accompanied by respiratory distress. Individually or in conjunction with each other, these markers: aid in the diagnosis of myocardial infarction (MI), aid in the risk stratification of patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) including prediction of the likelihood of developing heart failure (HF), aid in the diagnosis, assessment of severity and likelihood of survival in HF, and aid in determining the probability of rule-out of patients presenting with clinical symptoms of venous thromboembolism (VTE) including pulmonary embolism (PE) and deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

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.
