A b s t r a c t We compared troponin I (TnI) assays (AxSYM [Abbott]; ACS:180 [Bayer]) in blood samples with concentrations less than 10 ng/mL (<10 µg/L).

Patients with discordant TnI results were compared with patients with concordant results and patients with negative TnI who had a new myocardial infarction or died within 2 months of initial testing. Positive TnI cutoffs by AxSYM and ACS:180 were 0.7doi:10.1309/ehmy-7wu1-uye7-ee99 pmid:11554168 fatcat:xxtyc6nnzfg47psnl27niwxd6e
