Using the NephroCheck® Test Kit

The NephroCheck® Test System is a single-use cartridge designed to detect biomarkers of acute kidney injury, TIMP-2 and IGFBP-7. The test provides results in 20 minutes.

The test procedure involves the operator applying a fresh or thawed clinical urine sample (mixed with labeled fluorescent conjugate) to the NephroCheck® Test Cartridge, then inserting the test cartridge into the Astute140® Meter for incubation, reading, result calculation and result display.

Each NephroCheck® Test Cartridge contains RFID cards to ensure kit expiration date and lot-specific information is downloaded. Each cartridge also includes two detection zones (one positive and one negative control) as procedural controls that are run automatically with every sample that confirm that the NephroCheck® Test procedure is performed correctly.
