IB10 sphingotest® bio-ADM®
IB10 sphingotest® bio-ADM® is a rapid point-of-care (POC) immunoassay for the in vitro quantitative determination of bioactive Adrenomedullin (bio-ADM®), a hormone maintaining endothelial function. The endothelium contributes to blood pressure and separates blood from the surrounding tissue. Elevated blood levels of bio-ADM® predict blood pressure break down and leaky vessels resulting in oedema. Imbalanced endothelial function is the major cause of shock ultimately resulting in organ dysfunction and death. Early identification of an imbalance in endothelial function allows guidance of vasopressor and diuretic therapy in critically ill patients to improve outcomes.
