Disclaimer: AACC collected 60 mL of blood from volunteer donors attending the AACC Annual Meeting in Atlanta, GA in order to establish the 99th percentile for cardiac troponin in a healthy population. After collection, the blood was processed on site, divided into equal sample sizes and then transported to CDC for storage at -80°C. Samples were de-identified and no test results will be provided to donors. Sets of donor samples are being offered to IVD manufacturers of cardiac troponin assays for purchase. AACC has undertaken this activity as part of its mission to further scientific research.
