FUTURE I-O Plattform for intra-operative hormone monitoring
"Lab-on-a-cart" system for real-time measurement of PTH during surgery.
Intra-operative intact PTH results provided within 10 minutes.
PTH (Parathormone): Sensitivity: 6 pg/ml
Calibration: WHO Standard 79/500
Measurement Range: 6 - 2500 pg/ml
Historically, successful surgical management of primary hyperparathyroidism has required bilateral exploration of the neck. By confirming complete removal of hypersecreting tissue, an intra-operative parathyroid hormone (IO-PTH) assay allows use of a more limited procedure.
IO-PTH levels predict the postoperative outcome, can provide valuable information to surgeons, and can decrease the duration of surgery and hospital stay.
