Taking Troponin to Heart

Premier Pulse     January 2020

As of May 22, 2019, Premier Health and CompuNet Clinical Laboratories switched to a new troponin test: the High Sensitivity Troponin T (5th Generation) assay, and discontinued the Troponin T (4th generation) assay. The new assay is the most recent generation available and has been employed in Europe, Canada, and Asia since 2009.

Watch the video education session titled “Taking Troponin to Heart,” presented by Mukul Chandra, MD, vice chair of Premier Cardiovascular Institute. In Dr. Chandra’s presentation, he explains the science behind Troponin and myocardia injury and how it can seamlessly indicate a patient is experiencing chest pain or coronary artery disease.
