The Triage BNP Test is a rapid, point-of-care fluorescence immunoassay used with the Triage MeterPro. The test is used to measure B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) in EDTA anticoagulated whole blood or plasma specimens. The Triage BNP Test is the first rapid BNP immunoassay indicated for risk stratification for both acute coronary syndrome and heart failure.
