Product Information

AdvaCare is a CE, ISO and USFDA manufacturer of NT-proBNP Test Kits.

The AccuQuick™ brand of NT-proBNP Test Kits, manufactured in multiple configurations, is internationally distributed and recognized for reliable quality and exceptional value. With distribution across developed and developing markets alike, our products are uniquely positioned as the brand of choice for medical professionals.

NT-proBNP test kit is a chromatographic immunoassay for determining NT-proBNP in human blood, plasma or serum to determine congestive heart failure (CHF).

The NT-proBNP test kit uses a combination of anti-NT-proBNP antibody-coated particles that qualitatively detect NT-proBNP in whole blood, serum or plasma. The minimum detection level is 0.45 ng/ml.

The main use of NT-proBNP test kits is the detection of heart failure. The test can also enable better diagnosis, and even give information about how severe heart failure the patient suffered from was.

It is advisable to use the test if a patient shows symptoms such as fatigue, shortness of breath, fluid in the abdomen. The symptoms are usually connected with heart disease or are a consequence of a heart attack. Other symptoms also include swollen ankles or/and legs.

Additional Information

NT-proBNP is a prohormone with a 76 amino acid N-terminal inactive protein that is activated to release brain natriuretic peptide (BNP). Brain Natriuretic Peptide (BNP) is released by cardiomyocytes in heart ventricles when the ventricular blood volume is increased. BNP decreases systemic vascular resistance and central venous pressure and natriuresis is increased. BNP and NT-proBNP levels in the blood are used to determine acute congestive heart failure and also for the prognosis of heart failure. Higher levels of BNP and NT-proBNP are typical for patients with symptomatic and asymptomatic left ventricular dysfunction and is associated with coronary artery disease and myocardial ischemia.

Shortness of breath and fatigue occurs in patients with reduced cardiac output. NT-proBNP improves diagnostic accuracy in patients with shortness of breath and potential heart failure.

Benefits of NT-proBNP Test Kits

  • Results available in only 10 minutes;
  • Easy to use;
  • No need for an analyser;
  • Qualitative results can be read visually;
  • Cost effective method for identifying heart failure in patients.

Usage

Bring the test, specimen, buffer, and controls to reach room temperature 15 to 30°C before testing. Open a pouch and remove the cassette from the pouch. Use it within one hour on a clean and flat surface.

If using serum or plasma specimen, transfer 3 drops of serum or plasma (75μl) to the sample well of the test cassette. If using Venipuncture Whole Blood specimen, transfer 3 drops of whole blood (75 μl) to the specimen well and add 1 drop of buffer (40 μl).

If using Fingerstick Whole Blood specimen, use a capillary tube, fill it and transfer 75 μl of fingerstick whole blood specimen to the specimen well and add 1 drop of buffer (40 μl). To use hanging drops allow 3 hanging drops of fingerstick whole blood specimen (75 μl) into the specimen well.

Read the results at 10 minutes but not after 20 minutes.

The test result is positive if there is a colored line in the control line region and there is also another line that says that the result is positive. More intense color depends on the concentration of NT-proBNP in the specimen. Negative results are detected when there is only 1 line. Invalid results appear when no lines are present.

Precautions

  • Do not use if pouch is damaged;
  • Do not eat, drink or smoke in the area where the specimens or kits are handled;
  • Wear protective clothing such as laboratory coats, disposable gloves or eye protection when specimens are being tested;
  • Humidity and temperature can adversely affect results;
  • The used test should be discarded according to local regulations.
