Roche Troponin T-high sensitive

Accelerated diagnosis of Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI)

Roche Troponin T-high sensitive (cTnT-hs)

In the case of suspected AMI, prompt treatment is essential. Every 30 minutes of delay between symptoms and treatment increases the 1-year mortality rate by 7.5%1.

Troponin is the preferred biomarker in defining AMI according to the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) guidelines2 and the Roche Troponin T-high sensitive assay (cTnT-hs) is recommended by the NICE Diagnostics guidance [DG40] for the early rule out of Non-ST-Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction (NSTEMI)3.

Roche Troponin T-high sensitive can reduce the time needed to rule-in or rule-out NSTEMI to as little as 1 hour using the 0/1 hour rule-in and rule-out algorithm recommended by the ESC2.

TnT hs accelerated algo and ESC 2020 guidelines

Adopting the the ESC recommended 0/1-h cTnT-hs algorithm can

Reduce length of observation time
Triage over 75% of Emergency Department (ED) chest pain patients within 1 hour 4,5,6

Reduce overall length of stay in the ED
Facilitate early discharge or transfer from the ED by reducing time spent in ED by 2.1 hours (33%) vs standard practice7, 8

Lower overall AMI diagnostic costs
Reduce the need for additional diagnostic testing 7, 8
