Eagle Biosciences’ Cardiovascular line is a full list of unique assays for the
comprehensive determination of important and emerging biomarkers of
cardiovascular disease. Our NT-proBNP ELISA Assay Kit is one of the top assays in this Cardiovascular line offering a sensitive and specific means to assess BNP status. In addition, this assay kit
also provides excellent stability in
serum for reliable results and
a wide dynamic range thus enabling the accurate detection of the early stages
of heart failure.
EagleBio’s NT-proBNP Assay is an incredible tool for researchers, providing a more valuable, simple, cost-effective, and
flexible alternative to existing methods.
Why Measure NT-proBNP?
The N-terminal prohormone of brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) is
a 76 amino acid N-terminal protein that is cleaved to release brain natriuretic
peptide. Both NTproBNP and BNP are secreted mainly by the left cardiac
ventricle as a result of pressure overload and wall stretch. Elevated NT-proBNP
levels indicate the presence of ongoing myocardial stress and potentially an
underlying, possibly unsuspected, cardiac disorder.
NT-proBNP is the N-terminal 76 amino-acid
cleavage product of proBNP that is released from cardiac ventricles in response
to increased wall stress and volume overload. NT-proBNP has a longer half-life
in the circulation (120 minutes) compared with the C-terminal BNP peptide (20
minutes). Therefore, the measurement of NT-proBNP offers excellent stability in
serum/plasma for reliable results.
