The next IFCC webinar: "Laboratory & Analytical Aspects of High-Sensitivity Cardiac Troponin Assays : Views from the C-CB" will be held on 2 March, 2022.
This webinar, organized by the C-CB, will address educational issues pertaining to high-sensitivity cardiac troponin I & T assays and the clinical laboratory’s role in patient care addressing assay imprecision, interferences and implementation, including point of care assays. We will provide evidence-based information that laboratory professionals will be able to use to education their clinical colleagues for optimal interpretation of cTn measurements. Professor Apple will both moderate the session, as well as discuss the recent advances of whole blood POC hs-cTn assay. Professor Collinson will discuss the challenges related to real world practice in consideration of establishing hs-POC testing in parallel or combination with central laboratory testing. Dr. Aakre will address how imprecision of hs-cTn assays may affect patient classifications in early rule out strategies used in the emergency department. Professor Hammarsten will educate the audience on the latest developments of macro-troponin interferences that can be quite variable between hs-cTn assays, and explain how this interference concerns clinicians with interpretaion during patient care.
This webinar comprises of three following presentations of 20 min each, followed by 20 min of panel discussion at the end where the speakers will answer to your questions.
