One-step Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) Test Kits

Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) Test Kit

In the diagnosis of the Acute Myocardial Infarction, three rapid test kits are commonly used to help, which are Troponin-I (cTnI) Rapid Test Kit, CK-MB Rapid Test Kit and Myo Rapid Test Kit. Both single cassette or multi-3 test panel are available. These rapid test kits are all a rapid In-Vitro (IVD) rapid test based on the principle of chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of human Myoglobin, Creatine Kinase MB (CK-MB) and cardiac Troponin-I in serum or plasma. These test kits are easy to perform, and takes as short as 10 minutes to be sure of the result, which make them suitable a Point of Care test (POCT) test kits.

The Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) Rapid test is for simultaneous qualitative determination of myoglobin (Myo), creatine kinase MB (CK-MB), and cardiac troponin I (cTnI) in human plasma or serum. AMI triad test results are used as an aid in the diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction in emergency room, critical care, point-of-care and hospital settings. MYO/CK-MB/cTnI rapid test panel provides a qualitative analytical test result. With this AMI serum test, the detection of these three markers is complementary in diagnosis of myocardial infarction since they detect cardiac tissue damage at different time structure and over a wide range of times after myocardial infarction. So the accuracy of the diagnosis will be higher than a single CK-MB test, Myoglobin test or a cTnI test.

Principle

Myo/CK-MB/cTnI myocardial infarction 3-in-1 rapid test panel uses a solid-phase chromatographic immunoassay technology to qualitatively detect the elevation of myoglobin (Myo), CK-MB, and troponin I (cTnI) in human serum or plasma specimens. When serum or plasma sample is added to the sample wells, it will move along the three independent membrane strips. Myoglobin, CK-MB and cTnI in the sample, if any, will be bound to specific antibody-colloidal gold conjugates and move to the test regions (T) where immobilized anti-myoglobin, anti-CK-MB, and anti-cTnI have been pre-coated respectively. The cardiac marker-antibody-dye complexes will bind to the corresponding immobilized antibodies or in the test regions. Red lines will appear because of the accumulation of the colloidal gold particles, indicating a positive result.

Unbound dye complexes move on to the control regions (C) and will be captured there, color lines will emerge indicating the validity of the assay procedure, thus providing an internal control mechanism.

Background Information

Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is commonly known as a heart attack. It is the interruption of blood supply to a part of the heart. The resulting ischemia and oxygen shortage, if left untreated for a period of time, can cause damage or infarction of myocardium. Myoglobin (MYO), Creatine Kinase MB (CK-MB) and cardiac Troponin I (cTnI) are the proteins appear in the bloodstream after cardiac injury. Myoglobin is a hemoprotein normally found in skeletal and cardiac muscle. When muscle cells are damaged, MYO is released into the blood rapidly due to its relatively small size. The concentration increases measurably above baseline within 2-4 hours post-infarct, peaking at 9-12 hours, and returning to baseline within 24-36 hours. CK-MB is an enzyme also present in the cardiac muscle. The release of CK-MB into the blood following an MI can be detected within 3-8 hours after the onset of symptoms. It peaks within 9 to 30 hours, and returns to baseline levels within 48 to 72 hours. Cardiac Troponin I is a protein found in cardiac muscle. The release pattern of Troponin I is similar to that of CK-MB, with a difference that Troponin I remains elevated for 6-10 days, thus providing for a longer window of detection for cardiac injury.
