Atellica VTLi Cartridge

Atellica® VTLi Patient-side Immunoassay Analyzer

A vital leap forward in cardiac testing

When a patient enters the emergency department presenting with the symptoms of a myocardial infarction (MI), every moment is critical. Achieving favorable clinical and operational outcomes requires fast and accurate chest pain assessment at the point of care, as well as coordination with the laboratory for quality assurance. Having high-sensitivity troponin testing at the point of care—producing accurate results in just 8 minutes—could transform care delivery for millions of people each year, improving ED throughput, reducing stress and strain on acute care clinicians, and aiding in optimizing the use of time and resources of busy laboratories. 

Watch and listen as Professor Louise Cullen (University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia) gives a special discussion on acute care through the lens of critical laboratory assays.

Dr. Cullen shares her ideas on how high-sensitivity Troponin at the point of care can aid in early chest pain assessment within the ED.

SCA Scientists' Choice Awards Winner 2022

The winner of the Clinical Video Interview of the Year was our very own ‘High-sensitivity cardiac troponin assays and the power of point of care in the emergency department’ which is an interview with Dr. Frank Peacock, professor of emergency medicine and vice chair of research, department of emergency medicine at Baylor College of Medicine.

In the winning video, Peacock discusses the importance of cardiac troponin as a biomarker for myocardial infarction, highlights the benefits of high-sensitivity versus contemporary troponin assays, and shares why point-of-care testing is a powerful tool in the emergency department.
