Cardiovascular disease and cardiac biomarkers

We help improve people’s lives by maximizing confidence in decision making.

According to the World Health Organization, cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the number one cause of death globally: more people die annually from CVD than from any other cause. We help improve people’s lives by maximizing confidence in decision making in cardiac through constantly raising the standard in diagnostics.

CVD accounts for over 17 million deaths and 37% of premature deaths (people less than 70) are caused by CVD. In 2010, global treatment costs were estimated at 863 billion USD. Disease prevalence and treatment cost are escalating driven largely by population growth and aging.

Those at risk of CVD need early detection & good management, as consequences of poor treatment are severe.

On top, the growing prevalence of heart disease, cancer and diabetes are major contributors to the rising cost of care, as 86% of healthcare costs are associated with managing chronic disease.1
