Roche offers new cardiac, point-of-care diagnostic test
Roche Diagnostics has introduced the Roche Cardiac 200, a testing solution for cardiac diagnostic needs in point-of-care testing environments.

The Roche Cardiac 200, is a lateral flow immunoassay testing system designed to provide quantitative cardiac marker test results on whole blood samples with a turnaround time of only 10 to 19 minutes for emergency department settings, according to the Indianapolis-based company.

Roche said its test can process up to 36 tests per hour and offers a cardiac marker menu that includes NT-proBNP, Troponin I (TnI), CKMB and Myoglobin. The instrument uses a internal corrected fluorescence measurement technology to meet performance expectations of laboratory systems as defined by the National Academy of Clinical Biochemistry (NACB).
