Point of Care testing is at its maximum value when critical or emergency situations are addressed. Rapid results drive faster intervention resulting in improved patient outcomes. At Nanomix, we understand the value of POC testing for Emergency Medicine.
Nanōmix eLab is the Nanōmix POC testing solution* in development for use in Emergency Departments and by pre-hospital First Responders to speed data availability for faster diagnosis of acute Myocardial Infarction (MI). Using a whole blood sample collected from a finger stick or blood draw, the Nanōmix eLab handheld system provides results in approximately 10 minutes at the site of first patient interaction, potentially reducing diagnosis of an MI by as much as an hour or more.
Troponin assays are very sensitive and specific indicators of damage to the heart muscle. They are measured in the blood to differentiate between unstable angina and a heart attack (myocardial infarction) in patients who exhibit chest pain. A patient who had suffered from a myocardial infarction would have an area of damaged heart muscle and so would have elevated cardiac troponin levels in the blood. The Nanōmix POC cardiac troponin assay has performance normally associated with central lab systems and superior to other POC platform technologies on the market today.
