NT-proBNP is only MBS-rebatable for the diagnosis of heart failure in patients presenting with dyspnoea to a hospital Emergency Department.
If "BNP" is requested, register for "NT-proBNP" (available in-house) (test code: BNP).
Remove serum or plasma from the separator gel.
Note: Biotin supplementation may cause falsely low results due to interference with the NT-proBNP assay. If the patient is known to be taking Biotin, interpret results with caution.
