CollectioN Of Venous and capillary blood samples for the development of nEw diagnostic devices for cardiovascuLar conditions

 

At present, if one needs to perform a blood test for cardiovascular investigation (for example troponin, D-dimer, CRP) a full bottled blood sample must be taken and sent to a laboratory for testing. Getting a result can be a lengthy process, during which appropriate management/diagnosis may be delayed.

Lumira have developed a point of care testing tool which can provide results for a number of cardiovascular biomarkers within minutes, therefore allowing for more rapid diagnosis and more efficient management of these patients. The purpose of this study is to correlate the results of bottled blood tests with those of the fingerprick tests to ensure accuracy of results. The eventual aim is that this point of care testing can be used in a variety of clinical settings, reducing the overall cost and time burden of running all of these tests in a laboratory.
