Radiometer adds new cardiac marker to AQT90 Flex

9th September 2010

Radiometer has upgraded the functionality of its AQT90 Flex immunoassay analyser by adding the cardiac marker troponin T to its range of features.

The unit will now be able to analyse levels of the marker in the blood of patients at the point of care, with results being produced in around 12 minutes.

Troponin has been identified by the European Society of Cardiology and American College of Cardiology as being the most definitive method of detecting acute myocardial infarction, with the AQT90 Flex now offering both troponin I and troponin T analysis.

Radiometer president Peter Kurstein said this new functionality will allow professionals to improve and accelerate processes, resulting in cost reductions and better patient care quality.

"Clinicians have the results when and where they need them, without having to wait for the lab or deal with the hassles of manual testing," he added.

Earlier this year the AQT90 Flex won a recommendation from the Buckinghamshire NHS Hospitals Trust, which has been able to improve its efficiency since installing the machines in its two accident and emergency departments.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-800058563-ADNFCR
