NT-proBNP Test

The LumiraDx NT-proBNP test is the only quantitative direct fingerstick NT-proBNP test available today*.

An easy to use, fast microfluidic immunoassay designed to rapidly quantify NT-proBNP levels in whole blood and plasma, the LumiraDx NT-proBNP test delivers reliable, quantitative results in only 12 minutes at the point of need.

Test benefits

The measurement of NT-proBNP aids in the diagnosis of individuals suspected of having congestive heart failure (also referred to as heart failure).

  • Precise and lab comparable results
  • Time to result: 12 minutes
  • No need for phlebotomy – Direct Fingerstick application available
  • Sample types: Direct Fingerstick (or via Lithium Heparin transfer tube) venous (Lithium Heparin) or plasma (Lithium Heparin)
  • Sample size: 20 μL
  • Haematocrit correction for whole blood samples
  • Storage at room temperature (2–30°C)

The LumiraDx NT-proBNP test is a smart, automated, highly portable solution designed to improve access and ease of use in community-based healthcare settings, without the need for phlebotomy.

Test Workflow

The Instrument and Test Strips are integrated with several quality control checks to ensure the Instrument and test are functioning correctly for every test run.

The workflow process is comprised of a simple sample collection with a fingerstick lancet followed by step-by-step guidance of the Instrument to report a patient result in 12 minutes from sample application.

Test performance

Method comparison

A method comparison study was carried out in heparinised venous plasma using 3 Test Strip lots and 659 samples. Each sample tested on the LumiraDx Platform was compared to plasma tested on the Roche Cobas Elecsys® proBNP II assay. The data was analysed by Passing Bablok regression.

A precision study was carried out in heparinised venous plasma using 2 concentrations of NT-proBNP. Each concentration was tested in 1 run of 5 replicates per day, for 5 days across 3 sites using 3 Test Strip lots. The results of the precision study are summarised below:
