A complete battery of STAT immunoassays has been introduced for cardiac biomarker testing on the manufacturer’s cobas® 6000 analyzer series, an integrated system designed for diagnostic labs with medium testing volumes. With a 9-minute duration, the assays are very fast and enable labs to deliver results to doctors treating cardiac patients in about half the time of standard Roche tests. The tests complement a line of existing STAT cardiac assays for Roche’s stand-alone platform, the cobas 4000 series. The tests include troponin T, troponin I, CK-MB, myoglobin and NT-proBNP. The STAT tests are virtually equivalent to Roche’s 18-minute tests in performance, precision and sensitivity.
