Analyzers, Point-of-Care, Whole Blood, Multianalyte, Cardiovascular Marker

Definition : Multianalyte point-of-care analyzers designed to detect and determine the concentration of analytes (cardiac markers) in whole blood appropriate for rapid assessment of acute cardiovascular diseases such as acute coronary syndrome and/or myocardial infarction. Key cardiac markers include troponin I or T, myoglobin, creatine kinase MB, D-dimer and N-terminal pro-natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP). These analyzers are typically portable electronic units with a display and appropriate software; tests are performed using disposable reagent strips and/or cartridges. Cardiovascular multianalyte point-of-care analyzers are intended for use in emergency rooms and doctors' offices; they may also be used to aid in the assessment and management of other cardiovascular diseases such as congestive heart failure, deep vein thrombosis, and pulmonary embolism.
