Cardiac Markers Tests
The underlying mechanism of CVD involves atherosclerosis, which making it hard for blood to flow through arteries because of the narrowing caused by the gradual build-up of fatty material (called atheroma) within their walls. Without adequate blood, the heart (or other tissue cells) becomes starved of oxygen and other essential nutrients. Then those cells die, which leads a series of symptoms of CVD.
Both the elements taking part in the atherosclerosis, such as C-reactive protein (CRP) low-density lipoprotein (LDL), high-density lipoprotein (HDL), cholesterol, triglycerides, D-dimmer and substances released after the dying of cells, such as troponin (cTnI and cTnT), creatine kinase-MB (CK-MB), Myoglobin (Mb) can be taken as markers of the development of CVD. These markers are not only used in the diagnosis and risk stratification of patients, but also taken into consideration in therapeutic decision-making and assessment of clinical outcomes.
As one of the leading company in diagnostics industry, Creative Diagnostics provides kits for cardiac marker tests with high sensitivity and high specificity as follows:
|• cTnI (serum/plasma/whole blood)||• CK-MB (serum/plasma/whole blood)|
|• D-Dimer (serum/plasma/whole blood)||• MPO (whole blood)|
|• Myoglobin (serum/plasma/whole blood)||• CRP (serum/plasma/whole blood)|
|• cTnI, CK-MB and Myoglobin (serum/plasma/whole blood)||• Lp-PLA2 (serum/whole blood)|
|• NT-proBNP (serum/plasma/whole blood)||• FABP (serum/plasma/whole blood)|
