Cardiac Marker Test Device - cTnI / CK-MB - Erba Qik (20 Test Pack size)

erbaqik cardiac marker test device Troponin I CK-MB     Heart attacks are the leading cause of death all over the world. Timely diagnosis and treatment can determine the differences between life and death. Most commonly used markers for the detection of the disease are Troponin I, CK MB and Myoglobin. These proteins are released into the bloodstream after the onset of Acute Myocardial Infarction(AMI).

Troponin I (cTnI)

  • Troponin I is a highly tissue-specific cardiac protein found almost solely in the Myocardium. Troponin I is released into the blood 4 - 6 hours after the onset of Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI), reaching peak levels in 16 - 30 hours. Elevated levels of Troponin I can be detected in blood even after 5 - 8 days after onset, hence Troponin I is also useful for late of diagnosis of Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI).
  • Troponin I consider as the Ideal Biomarker for Myocardial injury.
  • Troponin I is a better prognostic parameter of cardiovascular events in asymptomatic patients on hemodialysis.


Creatine Kinase (CK or  CPK) is an enzyme found in muscle and brain. Normally, very little CK is found circulating in the blood.
High level indicates muscle or brain damage probably due to myocardial infarction (heart attack), muscle disease or stroke
In AMI, CK MB level typically rises 4 -6 hours after onset of Chest pain and peaks within 12 - 24 hours.
