- Built-in Test Control
- Long Shelf Life
- Room Temperature Storage of Test Cassette
- No Need for Precise Timing
- Serum, Plasma or Whole Blood Testing
- Single or Batch Testing
Key to Simple Results for the Cardiac Marker Tests
- Add 120 µL of Sample to Sample well (S)
- Read the result in 15 minutes
Reading the Result (Visual)
- Control line (C): a colored Control line indicates the test is COMPLETE and has worked properly.
- Test line (T): a colored Test line indicates the test is POSITIVE (i.e., cardiac marker detected above the cutoff level).
- Sample well (S): Add test sample.
Reading the Result (Reader)
- Positive: A colored line appears for the marker, plus a Control line.
- Negative: No colored line appears for the marker; only the Control line appears.
- The DXpress Reader automatically reads and stores the result.
- The result can be printed or downloaded to PC or LIS.
