For use with the Cobas h 232 POC System.
The NT-proBNP test strips are used to detect suspected heart failure and the monitoring of patients with compensated left ventricular dysfunction. They also monitor the risk of stratification in patients with acute coronary syndromes.
Test Result Time: 12 minutes
Measuring range: 60 9,000 pg/mL
Cut-off values: <125 pg/mL = Exclusion of Non-acute heart failure, <300 pg/mL = Exclusion of acute heart failure
Consideration of age-stratified cut-points for diagnosis of (=CHF likely considering confounding factors): <50 years < 450 pg/mL, 50-75 years >900 pg/mL, >75 years > 1,800 pg/mL
