October 3, 2013 — Delivering the precision, clinical sensitivity and clinical specificity necessary to assist physicians with the diagnosis of myocardial infarction (MI), Beckman Coulter Inc. announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance of its new Access AccuTnI+3 troponin I assay for use on the UniCel DxI series of immunoassay systems.

Following the June 2013 clearance of the Access AccuTnI+3 troponin I assay on Beckman Coulter's Access 2 immunoassay analyzer, the new troponin assay is now cleared for use on all of the company's immunoassay systems, as well as the UniCel DxC integrated chemistry and immunoassay series.

"The AccuTnI+3 troponin assay has been clinically proven through a large multi-center study that enrolled more than 1,900 subjects, and it is confirmed that the test provides the clinical performance needed for optimal patient management," said Arnd Kaldowski, president, Beckman Coulter Diagnostics. "Our new troponin I assay is directly aligned with the FDA's October 2010 guidance to manufacturers of troponin assays and confirms our commitment to modernize the performance evaluation of this critical test."

AccuTnI+3 delivers clinical sensitivity and specificity aligned with contemporary use of troponin set forth by the FDA and utilizes platform-specific reagents and calibrators.
