For instance, there are three major areas where our cardiac proteins are now being used in are dedicated chemistry, point of care and immunoassay systems: Dyslipidemia, Atherosclerosis and Acute Coronary Syndrome. Dyslipidemia is characterized by abnormal amount of lipids and we provide products such as cholesterol , high density lipoprotein, low density lipoproteins, APO A1 and triglycerides that are formulated in these tests. Atherosclerosis is the hardening of the arteries where there is a build-up of plaque in the inner walls that results in reduced flow of oxygen-rich blood and tests now are using our fibrinogen, c-reactive protein and myeloperoxidase products. Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) which we all know as that sudden heart attack, basically reflects the damage done to the coronaries by atherosclerosis from reduced blood flow to the heart muscle, starving it of oxygen and leading to the heart muscles failure or death. Our clients have qualified our Cardiac Troponin I I and Troponin T, CKMB, BNP, NT-ProBNP and Myoglobin . As demand grows so will our product line due to our scientific knowledge and experience. “
