NEW: Sample requirements
The special Cardiopet® tubes are no longer required - you can now submit samples using your routine sample tubes. A further benefit is the significant reduction in sample volume required when requesting as either a Stand Alone test or in a Profile. This is particularly advantageous for the routine testing of your feline patients, when blood collection can be difficult.
Please note: Change in sample requirements for feline patients (serum instead of EDTA plasma)
Affordable and convenient
How Cardiopet® proBNP works
As the chambers of the heart are stretched, they release BNP. First discovered in 1988 and routinely used as a cardiac marker in humans, BNP is a peptide stored as a “pro-hormone.” As heart disease progresses, the chambers become more stretched and BNP is released in greater quantities. Cardiopet® proBNP measures Nt-proBNP, allowing you to quantitatively track the progression of the disease and make judgments about the condition of the heart.
