    Perspectives in 2020 Successfully Implementing High-Sensitivity Cardiac Troponin: Collaboration Between Laboratory Medicine and Clinical Practice

    Designed to aid in diagnosing acute myocardial infarctions (AMI) through the quantitative measurement of cardiac troponin I in serum or plasma, high-sensitivity troponin plays a critical role in the timely diagnosis of AMI, or heart attacks.

    Siemens Healthineers offers proven, true high-sensitivity cardiac troponin I assays:

    • Demonstrate clinical proof that the Siemens Healthineers’ assays are true high-sensitivity troponin I assays according to current guidelines.1-4
    • Offer fast, accurate, and actionable results to leverage current protocols
    • Provide confidence in results due to minimal assay interferences*
    The Atellica® Solution’s streamlined STAT process has been shown to deliver actionable high-sensitivity troponin I results in 10 minutes.

    Understanding Findings of Sex-specific 99th Percentile URLs for High-sensitivity Cardiac Troponin Assays Derived from Universal Sample Bank

    Earn CE credits!

    Selection of healthy reference populations and definition of exclusion criteria for deriving 99th percentiles for high-sensitivity cardiac troponin assays (hs-cTn) used in clinical practice and research vary considerably. Dr. Fred S. Apple and Dr. W. Frank Peacock discuss the following Universal Sample Bank findings and their clinical implications:

    • Sex-specific 99th percentiles varied according to the statistical method and hs-cTn assay used
    • Not all assays provided measurable concentrations for women to qualify as hs assays
    • Surrogate exclusion criteria used to define normality tended to lower 99th percentiles
    • Participants will learn that the decision concentrations used can affect diagnostics, risk-outcome assessments, and analytical characteristics.  

    New AACC Poster #B-17

    A large clinical laboratory in France recently transitioned from a contemporary sensitive cardiac troponin I assay to a high-sensitivity troponin I assay. To support the successful introduction of high-sensitivity troponin, the lab collaborated in advance with clinicians to help educate them on the improved clinical utility of a high-sensitivity test compared to the existing sensitive cTnI assay. Evaluating the performance of the new method in close collaboration with clinicians helped the laboratory provide critical support to clinicians during the assay conversion.
