Evaluation of a new Electrochemiluminescence Immunoassay System for Measuring High-Sensitivity Cardiac Troponin T by Jinying Wang, Qianlong Meng, Yi Zhao, Zhiyuan Li, Lu Ling, Zhenzhen Xu, Zhen Li, Xiaoyang Li

Background: The aim of this study was to verify the analytical performance of the UD90DT electrochemiluminescence immunoassay system (the UD90DT system) for measuring high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT).
Methods: According to the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute guidelines, the imprecision, linearity, reference interval, limit of blank (LoB), limit of detection (LoD), and functional sensitivity (FS) of hs-cTnT using the UD90DT system were verified. The trueness was validated using the Proficiency Testing (PT) materials.
Results: The within-run and between-run coefficients of variations (CVs) of two hs-cTnT levels were 7.2% and 1.5%, and 7.1% and 2.6%, respectively. The biases of the PT samples (n = 6) all fell within the allowable total error. The linearity satisfied the requirements, with a slope of 0.9963 and an R12 value of 0.9998. The hs-cTnT levels of the healthy volunteers (n = 20) ranged from 3.0 ng/L to 7.7 ng/L. All blank calibrator measurements (n = 20) fell within the LoD claim, and none of the samples (n = 25) had a LoB value ≤ 3.0 ng/L. The FS was 5.3 ng/L. Furthermore, a good correlation between the UD90DT system and the Cobas e 601 module was observed for hs-cTnT.
Conclusions: The analytical performance of hs-cTnT using the UD90DT system is acceptable and satisfies clinical needs.
