BACKGROUND: A rapid bedside whole-blood quantitative cTnT assay has recently been developed. We evaluated
MATERIAL/METHODS: Whole-blood cTnT levels were measured in 96 patients with ACS using the Roche Cardiac Reader[sup]®[/sup] rapid bedside assay device, and the results were compared with serum cTnT levels in the same patients measured by the Roche Elecsys[sup]®[/sup] Immunoanalyzer. There were 50 patients with clinical evidence of myocardial injury and 56 without.
RESULTS: From the qualitative point of view (reporting negative or positive tests), the results of the rapid bedside tests were identical to those obtained by the serum immunoanalyzer. From
CONCLUSIONS: The rapid bedside cTnT assay correlates well with immunoanalyzer measurements between
