High Sensitivity Troponin Testing: Decentralized, Dependable and No Compromise in Quality
Wednesday January 25, 2023 • 2 pm EST
High-sensitivity cardiac troponin (hs‐cTn) assays are able to increase diagnostic accuracy and reduce time to diagnosis, while hs‐cTn assays have been available for central laboratory-based systems for many years the first hs‐cTn assays are now available on a small platform. This webinar will address the performance of such a test in patients with suspected ACS and show the accuracy of the assay in clinical setting.
After participating in this session attendees will be able to:
1.Explain the principle clinical benefits of having a high-sensitivity (hs)‐TnI assay and the flexibility of a decentralized measurement with laboratory performance.
2.Compare and contrast the validation processes for hs-TnI assays.
3.Explain how to meet the challenges associated with use of algorithms in both hospital and decentralized options.
