Helping your lab support patients with the most urgent needs quickly

Patients presenting with chest pain and shortness of breath are time-critical emergencies that leave your lab no room for error or delay in completing cardiac diagnostic tests. Achieving the best patient outcomes requires the fastest intervention possible.

Vitros® High-Sensitivity Troponin Assay*

Provides high analytical sensitivity and precision for the detection of small changes at the 99th percentile, enabling early diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction.

Vitros High-Sensitivity Troponin assay* 

  • Features a high negative predictive value that helps reduce emergency department crowding and requires fewer tests to rule out

  • Meets all International Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (IFCC) requirements for classification as a high-sensitivity troponin assay

  • Shows excellent prognostic value as an aid in the assessment of cardiac-related mortality/MI and all-cause mortality over 30 days and 12 months

  • Is compliant for use with guidelines for management of acute coronary syndrome, including ESC, AHA and NICE


*Vitros High-Sensitivity Troponin Assay is not available in all countries. Please check with your local QuidelOrtho representative for availability.

Vitros® NT-proBNP II Assay

NT-proBNP II is more stable than BNP, an important feature when samples must be transported.1 


Vitros NT-proBNP II assay:

  • Validated for use with ICON age-specific, cutoffs, which optimize diagnosis decisions, accounting for age and renal function with better specificity of acute dyspnea cases1-5

  • Long calibration interval at 70 days

  • Automated, on-the-fly loading of consumables and reagents with no interruptions

  • Intelligent sampling order to balance processing demands 

  • Correlates well with most other NT-proBNP assays5

  • Optimize patient outcomes and combine laboratory testing with emergency room testing
