THE CHALLENGE

WHEN EARLY RECOGNITION OF AMI IS KEY

  • Estimated 17.9 million people died from cardiovascular diseases in 2016, representing 31% of all global deaths
  • There are 32.4 million myocardial infarctions and strokes worldwide every year
  • The sensitivity of ECGs for MI is poor (28%-54%)
  • One-thirds of MI patients do not present with chest pain but instead with non-specific symptoms such as fatigue, nausea, dizziness

TEST PRINCIPLES

Quantitative fluorescent immunoassay

Sample: 75 µL EDTA whole blood

Time to Result: ~19 minutes

Single use test cartridge with barcode defines lot specific calibration

Proprietary RAMP® buffer enhances performance

A calibrated transfer device is provided with every kit

    • Cardiac Troponin is the gold standard test for myocardial infarction and is usually the first test ordered for patients with chest pain
    • Measurements of cardiac troponin I can improve diagnosis and treatment of myocardial infarction (MI)
    • With RAMP Troponin I, healthcare professionals can obtain a quantitative measurement of cardiac troponin I from 75uL of blood without the need for centrifugation
    • RAMP tests are individual, single-use quantitative tests that provide rapid, accurate, lab quality results within minutes
