    The NT-proBNP Rapid Test Cassette (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of human NT-proBNP in whole blood, serum or plasma as an aid in the diagnosis of congestive heart failure (CHF).


    【SUMMARY】

    Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) is described as a condition in which the heart is unable to maintain adequate circulation of blood in the tissues of the body or to pump out the venous blood returned to it by the venous circulation CHF affects nearly 17 million people worldwide. NT-proBNP, N-terminal fragment of proBNP, is cleaved from the precursor peptide proBNP. It shows close correlation with the severity of heart failure. NT-proBNP is widely recognized as a definitive marker for the diagnosis of CHF. Some amount of NT-proBNP is available in the serum. However, elevated levels of NT-proBNP indicate the presence of CHF. The high sensitivity of NT-proBNP allows also the detection of mild forms of cardiac dysfunction in asymptomatic patients with structural heart disease.1, 2, 3 The European Society of Cardiology Task Force for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Chronic Heart Failure recommend in their guidelines that natriuretic peptides including NT-proBNP may be most useful clinically as a rule out test due to consistent and very high negative predictive values.

    The NT-proBNP Rapid Test Cassette (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) is a simple test that utilizes acombination of anti-NT-proBNP antibodies coated particles and capture reagents to detect NT-proBNP in whole blood, serum or plasma. The minimum detection level is 450 pg/mL
