NT-proBNP Test, RAMP NT-proBNP Test, Response Biomedical

RAMP NT-proBNP Test

The gold standard biomarker for heart failure (HF)

Response Biomedical offers a FDA cleared whole blood immunoassay NT-proBNP test, with our proprietary RAMP technology which detects the levels of N-terminal prohormone of brain natriuretic peptide in patients with congestive heart failure around the world. Read more about how this product will help your physicians and patients where a traditional BNP test cannot.

The Challenge

MANAGING PATIENTS WITH HEART FAILURE

  • 1 out of 4 patients will be readmitted within 30 days of discharge, the highest rate of readmission of any discharge diagnosis
  • 1 in 5 patients diagnosed with heart failure die within the first year and about half of people who develop heart failure die within 5 years of diagnosis
  • Heart failure often presents with non-specific symptoms and is frequently confused with pneumonia or COPD
  • Heart attacks and Coronary Heart Disease are two of the most expensive conditions to treat.
