SNAP® Feline Cardiopet® proBNP Test

 

The SNAP® Feline Cardiopet® proBNP Test is a simple, affordable test that gives you information about heart health during the patient visit. The test provides a chemistry analyte that indicates the stretch and stress on the myocardium.

  • Measurement of the most stable cardiac biomarker, NTproBNP
  • Proven accuracy, with results in 10 minutes
  • Affordable assessment tool for all patients with cardiac risk factors
 
SNAP Feline proBNP Test

The only pet-side cardiac blood test that measures
the stretch and stress of the heart

The SNAP® Feline Cardiopet® proBNP Test uses the most stable cardiac biomarker, NTproBNP

 

  • Assess all patients with cardiac risk factors quickly and easily.
  • Recommend follow-on diagnostics with confidence.
  • Rely on trusted ELISA technology and industry-leading support and education.

Correlation with the Cardiopet® proBNP Test’s Reference Method

 

A study was conducted to evaluate correlation between the SNAP® Feline Cardiopet® proBNP Test and the Cardiopet® proBNP Test's quantitative results.1

 

Results

The SNAP® Feline Cardiopet® proBNP Test had:

  • 99.5% agreement with the Cardiopet proBNP Test when concentrations of NTproBNP were <100 pmol/L.
  • 95.0% agreement with the Cardiopet proBNP Test when concentrations of NTproBNP were ≥270 pmol/L.

 

Cats with NTproBNP concentrations of <100 pmol/L, as measured using the Cardiopet proBNP Test, will test normal on the test (sample spot appears lighter than the reference spot). 

 

An abnormal result on the test indicates that the concentration of NTproBNP is greater than 100 pmol/L, as measured using the Cardiopet proBNP Test (sample spot appears equal to or darker than the reference spot).

It's easy to use the SNAP® Feline Cardiopet® proBNP Test

 

1.
Dispense 3 drops of sample and 5 drops of green conjugate into a disposable sample tube.
2.
Gently invert the sample tube 4–5 times to mix.
3.
Pour the entire contents of the sample tube into the sample well of a SNAP® device.
4.
When color first appears in the activation circle, press firmly to activate. You will hear a distinct “snap.”
5.
Read the test result 10 minutes from the time of activation.

 

 

Sample Information

  • Samples must be at room temperature (15°C–25°C) before beginning the test procedure.
  • Spun Serum or spun EDTA plasma, either fresh or stored at 2°C–8°C for up to one week, can be used.
  • For longer storage, serum or EDTA plasma can be frozen (-20°C or colder) and then recentrifuged before use.
  • Haemolysed, icteric or lipemic samples will not affect results.

 

Interpreting Results

 

 

Normal Level
If the color intensity of the sample spot is lighter than the color intensity of the reference spot, NTproBNP levels are normal.
Note: It is possible for no color to develop on the sample spot.

 

 

Abnormal Level
If the color intensity of the sample spot is equal to or darker than the color intensity of the reference spot, NTproBNP levels are abnormal.

Invalid Results

  • Background—If the sample is allowed to flow past the activation circle, background color may result. Some background color is normal. However, if colored background obscures test result, repeat the test.
  • No Color Development—If reference spot does not develop color, repeat the test.
