BNP and NT-proBNP may be used to help detect, diagnose and evaluate the severity of heart failure. Participants who are enrolled in the programme, most appropriate to their testing method. Three samples at an appropriate physiological range are distributed bimonthly.
The base material for BNP-32 is human EDTA plasma to correctly reflect the performance with patient samples, the plasma is spiked with recombinant human BNP-32, with the addition of Protease inhibitors to improve stability. For BNP-32 the POCT Triage meter is treated as a separate analyte. The samples are dispatched by Courier as frozen samples for BNP-32.
The base material is Lithium Heparin plasma to correctly reflect the performance with patient samples, the plasma is spiked with recombinant human NT-pro BNP to simulate the levels in patient samples. These samples are dispatched ambient by first class mail.
Samples per set: 3 x 0.5mL
|Analyte||Approx. Range Covered|
|BNP 32||20 - 3000||pg/mL|
|BNP Triage||20 - 1000||pg/mL|
|NT-pro BNP||20 - 4000||pg/mL|
