The Vcheck Canine NT-proBNP is an in vitro diagnostic test kit for the quantitative measurement of NT-proBNP concentration in canine serum. N-terminal pro-B type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) is cleaved from BNP which is produced by the muscle cells of the heart and increases with excessive stretching of the cells. NT-proBNP concentration reflects the degree of cardiac activation secondary to stimulus, such as stretching, allowing this marker to be used to assess the magnitude of cardiac muscle stretching. NT-proBNP is a valuable biomarker for differentiating cardiac and respiratory causes of dyspnea and can be used for detecting asymptomatic dilated cardiomyopathy disease in dogs. The BIONOTE Vcheck Canine NT-proBNP is designed to be used only by veterinarians.
