High-Sensitivity Troponin I is the latest addition to Siemens Healthineers’ comprehensive cardiac menu to assist clinicians with the diagnosis and treatment of chest pain patients. Designed to aid in diagnosing acute myocardial infarctions (AMI) through the quantitative measurement of cardiac troponin I in serum or plasma, high-sensitivity troponin plays a critical role in the timely diagnosis of AMI, or heart attacks.
Siemens Healthineers offers a proven, true high-sensitivity cardiac troponin I assays with fast, accurate, and actionable test results:
- Demonstrates clinical proof that the Siemens Healthineers' are true high-sensitivity troponin I assays according to the IFCC guidelines.1
- Offers fast, accurate, and actionable results to leverage faster protocols
- Provides confidence in results due to minimal assay interferences
High-sensitivity Troponin I is now available on the Atellica® IM Analyzer, ADVIA Centaur® Immunoassay Systems, Dimension® EXL™ and Dimension Vista® Integrated Systems.
Compared to traditional troponin assays, the Siemens Healthineers Atellica IM, ADVIA Centaur, Dimension EXL and Dimension Vista high-sensitivity troponin I assays are able to detect lower levels of troponin and smaller changes to a patient’s troponin levels, which may be an early indication of AMI. This design affords clinicians greater confidence in patient results below the 99th percentile by delivering precision that provides the ability to measure slight, yet critical, changes between serial troponin I values.
Precision between the limit of quantification and the 99th percentile is important to minimize analytic variation that could confuse a clinician’s assessment of a clinically significant change. With this data in hand, clinicians have the ability to more quickly diagnose and treat patients with suspected AMI, in some cases in as little as one to three hours.
