Trop T Sensitive Test
The Roche Trop T sensitive test is a qualitative immunological rapid test for the specific detection of cardiac Troponin T from anticoagulated whole blood. It is easy to use and read, so it does not require special training. The result can be read after only 15-20 minutes after the blood sample has been applied to the test window.
- Reading time: 15-20 minutes
- Usable everywhere
- Easy to use
- Test strips handy and small
- Storage temperature: +2 to +8 °C (refrigeration required!)
- Cut-off: 0.1 ng/ml (if a higher value is present, the test is positive)
What was TropT sensitive developed for?
The rapid test for troponin T was developed for the rapid diagnosis of myocardial infarction. Due to the release of a myocardium-specific biochemical marker, patients can now be diagnosed with acute coronary syndrome, as is the case with myocardial necrosis. Even in the absence of characteristic changes in the patient's ECG, a positive troponin T test indicates NSTEMI, thus supporting a rapid therapeutic decision.
This test contains two monoclonal antibodies specific for troponin T (gold-labeled and biotinylated). These form a so-called sandwich complex with Troponin T. After the erythrocytes have separated, the plasma flows through the detection zone of the test. If the concentration of Troponin T is higher than 0.1 ng/ml, the detection line turns red. This occurs due to the accumulation of troponin T sandwich complexes. Excess gold-labeled antibodies bind and stain the control line. If the control line is visible, the test is functioning properly.
Test procedure of the Troponin test
- Remove the test strip from the package and place it on a flat surface.
- Collect blood sample (EDTA or heparinized venous blood only)
- Place sample on test strip
- Wait 15 - 20 minutes, then read test result (a positive result is indicated by two dashes)
If no dash is displayed, the test is invalid and must be repeated.
