Abstract / Description of output

In a CODE-MI sub-study, six troponin assays were evaluated over 12 months using 3-samples (normal, female and male 99th-percentile levels; n=2,142 results from 67 instruments). Mean differences varied per assay with maximum values being ±4, ±8 and ±9 ng/L at the normal and sex-specific 99th-percentiles, respectively. A pragmatic approach, combining all assays, established maximum differences of ±3 ng/L or ±30%.
