The cobas h 232 POC system allows rapid and easy determination of Troponin T, NT-proBNP, D-Dimer, CK-MB and Myoglobin in different settings, like ambulances, general practitioner offices and emergency rooms.
|TEST||MEASURING RANGE||TIME TO RESULT||CLINICAL UTILITY|
|Troponin||40 – 2,000 ng/L||12 min||Early aid in diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction and identification of patients with an elevated mortality risk4|
|NT-proBNP||60 – 9,000 pg/mL||12 min||Aid in diagnosis of patients with suspected heart failure, in monitoring of patients with compensated left ventricular dysfunction and in the risk stratification of patients with acute coronary syndromes5|
|CK-MB||1.0 – 40 ng/mL||12 min||Aid in diagnosis of patients with suspected acute myocardial infarction (AMI, heart attack), assessment of the size of the infarction and detection of re-infarction1|
|D-Dimer||0.1 – 4.0 µg/mL||8 min||Aid in exclusion of deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism2|
|Myoglobin||30 – 700 ng/mL||8 min||Aid in diagnosis of patients with suspected myocardial infarction, reperfusion control3|
