proANP - superior over ANP
Why should proANP be used instead of ANP?
- It‘s a SENSITIVE marker:proANP is up to 50 times more concentrated in plasma than ANP.
- It‘s a STABLE marker:proANP is significantly more stable than ANP, which has a half-life of only 2.5 minutes.
- It‘s a MULTIPURPOSE marker:proANP is measurable in haemolytic samples, ANP not.
- It‘s a VALUABLE marker:proANP fluctuates less rapidly than ANP levels.
