NEW - Quantitative suPARnostic® Quick Triage Point of Care Test

Denmark, June 15, 2015.

The suPARnostic® Quick Triage is now a fully Quantitative Test for suPAR levels between
2-16 ng/mL suPAR.

The quantitative results are read with the suPARnostic® Quick Test Reader – available in only
20 minutes.

The Quantitative suPARnostic® Quick Triage:
•       Facilitates better triage in the Emergency Room
•       Does not require highly skilled technician time or alter routines in the clinical laboratory
•       Can easily be done by a clinician in the Emergency Room

Each kit contains 25 units and ready-to-use buffer solution.

suPARnostic® Quick Triage is a Quantitative Point of Care Prognostic Triage test – delivering results in 20 minutes, giving the clinician a faster patient prognosis and an aid for prioritizing patients with unclear signs and history.

ViroGates announces first new ambulance study together with Nordic hospital partners starting May 2015

Denmark, April 13, 2015.

The Swedish Medical University Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm South General Hospital/Södersjukhuset, KI SÖS, and Helsinki University Central Hospital, HUCH, supported by ViroGates will initiate a pivotal ambulance study to explore the use of suPARnostic® in a new method for prehospital patient assessment.

In May 2015 an ambulance study aiming at testing 500 patients with suPARnostic® will start. The study will affect 65 ambulances in the Stockholm area and around 25 ambulances in the Helsinki area over a period of 6-9 months.

suPARnostic® can help acutely ill patients upon Emergency Room arrival
More than 10,000 emergency patients admitted to the acute care wards in Denmark, Austria and Finland have been tested with suPARnostic®. The publications confirm, that the biomarker suPAR is an independent marker of disease severity in heterogeneous patient cohorts, showing that suPARnostic® can help clinicians in the initial risk assessment and early triage of acutely ill patients upon Emergency Room arrival.

This new study will focus on the patient benefits of doing this evaluation prior to patient transport to the hospital.
