Randox has released an automated test for levels of BNP, which is a protein made by your heart and blood vessels. Elevated levels of BNP are indicative of several comorbid conditions such as Congestive Heart Failure, Coronary Heart Disease, Atrial Fibrillation, Chronic Renal Failure and Chronic Respiratory Disease. It has additionally been shown to be associated with ischaemic stroke and pre-eclampsia.
This control is designed to be used alongside the Acusera range of third-party controls, the Acusera 24.7 software will help to monitor and interpret QC data.
Acusera 24.7 provides access to a range of features including: interactive charts, automatic calculations of measurement uncertainty and sigma metrics, live peer group data generated from an extensive database of laboratory participants. Acusera true third-party controls offer complete test menu consolidation for laboratory Internal Quality Control.
Features & benefits:
