Value of high-sensitivity troponin assays1,2


  • Can enable faster decisions on discharge and admission
  • May improve diagnosis of MI in women
  • Aids in faster, more accurate diagnosis of MI


  • Improved precision
  • Improved sensitivity


  • Can minimize unnecessary procedures and tests
  • May reduce costs, length of stay, admissions rates and overnight stays

The burden of heart disease and mi


6 - 8m

6-8 million people present to US Emergency Departments every year with suspected Myocardial Infarction (MI).3





Only 8-15% are having an MI so, in theory, the majority could be discharged.4

Rapidly diagnosing and triaging chest pain patients

Emergency departments continually face the challenge of rapidly diagnosing and triaging patients with chest pain.5

Biomarkers can help clarify the clinical picture. Timely action on cardiac laboratory results is critical and may improve patient outcomes.6



Abbott’s high-sensitivity troponin I meets ifcc criteria

Ifcc definition of hs-ctn assay7

For an assay to be considered a high-sensitivity troponin assay, the following criteria should be met:

  1. Total imprecision at the 99th percentile value should be <10% CV.
  2. Measurable concentrations below the 99th percentile should be attainable with an assay at a concentration value above the assay’s limit of detection (LoD) for at least 50% of healthy men and women.

For In Vitro Diagnostic Use

Intended use

The Alinity i and ARCHITECT STAT High-Sensitivity Troponin-I assays are chemiluminescent microparticle immunoassays (CMIA) used for the quantitative determination of cardiac troponin I (cTnI) in human plasma (lithium heparin on Alinity i or dipotassium {K2} edta on ARCHITECT) on the Alinity i and ARCHITECT systems.

The Alinity i and ARCHITECT STAT High Sensitivity Troponin-I assays are to be used as an aid in the diagnosis of myocardial infarction (MI).

Aha/acc clinical guidelines11

“high-sensitivity cTn is preferred because it allows rapid detection of myocardial injury and has increased diagnostic accuracy”
