FASTER HEART ATTACK DETECTION

Loss of blood flow can cause irreversible heart muscle damage, making early detection the most important key to successful heart attack treatment. Abbott’s ARCHITECT STAT High Sensitive Troponin-I (hsTnl) test can measure very low levels of the protein, which allows doctors to evaluate whether patients are having a heart attack within two to four hours. This faster evaluation could allow doctors to reduce the time to diagnosis and treatment by several hours when compared to standard troponin tests. HsTnl is especially valuable for women, because their symptoms usually differ from those of men – contributing to underdiagnosis and undertreatment. Abbott’s Ireland team played an integral role in developing the ARCHITECT STAT assay, which is manufactured for global use at our diagnostics plant in Longford.
