A rapid test for the diagnosis of myocardial infarction (MI) to detect NT-proBNP qualitatively in whole blood, serum or plasma CE certified
The NT-proBNP Rapid Test Cassette (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of human NT-proBNP in whole blood, serum or plasma as an aid in the diagnosis of myocardial infarction (MI).
Both BNP and NT-proBNP levels in the blood are used for screening, diagnosis of acute congestive heart failure (CHF) and may be useful to establish prognosis in heart failure, as both markers are typically higher in patients with worse outcome.The plasma concentrations of both BNP and NT-proBNP are also typically increased in patients with asymptomatic or symptomatic left ventricular dysfunction and is associated with coronary artery disease and myocardial ischemia.
The NT-proBNP Rapid Test Cassette (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) is a simple test that utilizes a combination of anti-NT-proBNP antibody coated particles and capture reagents to qualitatively detect NT-proBNP in whole blood, serum or plasma. The minimum detection level is 0.45ng/mL.
How to use?
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Allow the test, specimen, buffer and/or controls to reach room temperature (15-30°C) prior to testing.
For Serum or Plasma specimen:
For Venipuncture Whole Bloodspecimen:

INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS
(Please refer to the illustration above)
POSITIVE:* A colored line in the control line region (C) and the presence of another colored line in the test line regions indicates a positive result. This indicates that the concentration of NT-proBNP is above the minimum detection level.
*NOTE: The intensity of the color in the test line region will vary depending on the concentration of NT-proBNP, present in the specimen. Therefore, any shade of color in the test line region should be considered positive.
NEGATIVE: One colored line appears in the control line region (C). No line appears in the test line region (T).This indicates that the concentration of NT-proBNP are below the minimum detection levels.
INVALID:Control line fails to appear. Insufficient specimen volume or incorrect procedural techniques are the most likely reasons for control line failure. Review the procedure and repeat the test with a new test. If the problem persists, discontinue using the test kit immediately and contact your local distributor.
