Siemens Healthineers offers new way to detect a broken heart: NT proBNPII assay now part of Atellica cardiac testing menu

June 28, 2024
NT-proBNP is a cardiac biomarker that helps diagnose heart failure.

Siemens Healthineers has added the NTproBNPII (PBNPII) assay to its comprehensive cardiac menu on the Atellica Solution to help diagnose heart failure.

N-terminal proBNP (NT-proBNP) and Brain or B-type natriuretic peptides (BNP) are cardiac markers of stress that are released in response to increased ventricular filling pressure. The PBNPII assay from Siemens Healthineers supports timely patient care with a 10-minute time-to-first-result. Siemens Healthineers now offers both natriuretic peptide tests to support choice and flexibility, as both assays can run on either the company’s Atellica IM or Atellica CI analyzer.
