Diagnostic testing solutions provider Quidel has received a CE Mark for its diagnostic assay TriageTrue High Sensitivity Troponin I Test for determining troponin I in EDTA anticoagulated whole blood and plasma specimens.

The single-use fluorescence immunoassay device will be used as an aid to diagnose myocardial infarction (MI), or heart attack, for use with the company’s Triage MeterPro instrumented system.

“According to Quidel, the new troponin assays are capable of detecting and quantitating troponin at lower levels.”

This will be helpful to determine the concentration of troponin I in whole blood or plasma specimens, anticoagulated with EDTA.

MI occurs when a part of the heart muscle fails to receive enough blood flow.

Quidel president and CEO Douglas Bryant said: “We are proud to introduce the world’s first Near Patient high sensitivity diagnostic test for Troponin I, and are excited by the positive impact that we can make in accurately providing results in 20 minutes or less to aid in diagnosing a heart attack.”

According to Quidel, the new troponin assays are capable of detecting and quantitating troponin at lower levels.
