Product Description

This Point-of-Care rapid test, is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay, for the qualitative detection of human H-FABP in whole blood (venipuncture or fingerstick blood), serum, or plasma samples. Results are available in 10 minutes, to assist health professionals in diagnosing Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI).

H-FABP as a Cardiac Biomarker

  • H-FABP is a sensitive and highly specific biomarker of myocardial ischemia and can be detected in the blood as early as thirty minutes from the onset of chest pain. H-FABP is 20 times more specific to cardiac muscle than myoglobin.
  • It is found at 10-fold lower levels in skeletal muscle than heart muscle.
  • H-FABP is recommended to be tested in conjunction with troponin to identify myocardial infarction and Acute Coronary Syndrome in patients presenting with chest pain.
  • H-FABP measured with troponin shows increased sensitivity of 20.6% over troponin at 3-6 hours following chest pain onset.

Test Attributes

  • Whole blood, serum or plasma may be used for testing
  • Results available in only 10 minutes
  • Easy to use
  • Results can be read visually
  • No need for an analyser
  • Cost effective method for identifying myocardial ischemia, myocardial infarction, and ACS

Test Procedure

  1. Ensure specimen and test kits are brought to room temperature before testing. Ensure the blood specimen is mixed well.
  2. Open the foil wrapped pouch and remove the cassette, placing it on a flat, clean surface. Use the test as soon as possible or within one hour of opening.
  3. Transfer the required amount of specimen (whole blood, serum, plasma) and buffer to the sample well and start the timer.
  4. Read the results at 10 minutes once the coloured lines have appeared. Results read after 20 minutes are considered invalid.
