Beckman Coulter OSR61155 Olympus Creatine Kinase Reagent / CK-MB Reagent (Creatine Kinase MB Test): Intended Use

Olympus Creatine-Kinase (CK) Reagent is a system reagent that measures the amount of creatine-kinase (CK) in human plasma and serum using Beckman Coulter AU analyzers. The CK procedure is a modification of the IFCC method, which catalyzes the transfer of a phosphate group from creatine phosphate to adenosine diphosphate (ADP) to produce creatine and adenosine triphosphate (ATP)

Creatine Kinase MB test measures the amount of an isoenzyme of creatine kinase (CK) in your blood. It is called CK-MB.

Your body makes 3 forms of CK, including CK-MB. CK is found in the heart, muscles, and other organs. These include the small intestine, brain, and uterus. If you have a heart attack, injured heart muscle cells release CK-MB into your blood.

Because many tissues contain CK, high levels of CK can be a sign of a variety of problems. Higher CK-MB may point more directly to heart damage.

Each year millions of Americans go to the emergency room with chest pain, but only a small amount of those people are having a heart attack or other serious, sudden heart problem. This test helps your healthcare provider figure out if you’re having a heart attack.

Measuring CK-MB used to be a common tool for diagnosing heart attacks, but healthcare providers use it less often today. Cardiac troponin is now the blood test of choice for finding a heart attack. This is because cardiac troponin is more specific and more sensitive than CK-MB.
