Actim® PROM

The original rapid test for detecting premature rupture of fetal membranes
Actim® PROM is the world’s first rapid test for reliably detecting premature rupture of fetal membranes (PROM) in all patients. The superior performance of the easy-to-use rapid test has revolutionized pregnancy monitoring for millions of women.

PROM is the most common identifiable cause of preterm births and a major cause of maternal and fetal morbidity. Correct PROM diagnosis is important to guide treatment and to minimize complications. However, PROM symptoms differ between patients, which makes diagnosis difficult.

The original Actim PROM test is the fastest and most accurate rapid test on the market: it gives reliable results in minutes, even in the presence of blood or other interfering substances, making the test suitable for all women with suspected PROM. As Actim PROM has been carefully designed to detect even non-visible ruptures in fetal membranes, correct treatment can be started early. Accurate PROM diagnosis targets treatment to those who need it, which improves patient safety and reduces costs.

Actim® Partus

The reliable way to identify and rule out the risk of preterm delivery
Actim® Partus is a fast and reliable point-of-care test to identify pregnant women with a real risk of preterm or imminent delivery, even before visible signs.

Preterm delivery (birth that occurs before the 37th week of pregnancy) is the leading cause of newborn morbidity and mortality. Early detection of high-risk pregnancies is challenging. Half of pregnant women experience associated symptoms, yet only 20 % of these are at real risk of immediate or preterm delivery.

Actim Partus is a simple and accurate rapid test to identify or rule out the risk of preterm delivery from week 22 until birth. The test can be used for all pregnant women, and it is reliable even in the presence of interfering substances. A negative Actim Partus result indicates that imminent delivery is highly unlikely; low-risk patients can thus return home, overtreatment is avoided, and valuable resources are saved.

Actim® Influenza A&B

The key to early flu diagnosis
Actim® Influenza A&B detects and differentiates between influenza A and B virus antigens from respiratory samples in just 10 minutes.

Influenza is a respiratory infection caused by influenza viruses. The seasonal flu epidemics are caused by two main types of influenza viruses, A and B, which infect around 10% of the population every year. The symptoms of influenza are similar to the symptoms caused by other, less severe viral infections. However, it is important to distinguish between influenza and common cold, since influenza is more likely to result in hospitalization, or even death.

Actim Influenza A&B is designed to give quick and reliable answers on the spot. Early diagnosis of influenza allows antiviral treatment to reduce the duration and severity of the illness. In addition, detection of influenza reduces unnecessary use of antibiotics and helps to take preventive actions in time to limit the spread of the infection.

Actim® CRP

Quick CRP results from just one drop
Actim® CRP is a rapid, semiquantitative and highly specific bedside test for C-reactive protein (CRP) detection.

Overuse of antibiotics may have devastating consequences. Antibiotics are often unnecessarily used for the treatment of viral infections, when they should only be prescribed to patients with bacterial infections. The combination of careful clinical assessment and serum CRP level measurement is an effective method for estimating whether a patient has bacterial or viral infection.

Actim CRP is a quick and convenient test that determines CRP levels and estimates if an infection is viral or bacterial. The test delivers reliable results in just five minutes, allowing you to assess whether there is a need for antibiotics or additional tests. Thus, proper medical treatment can be started already at the point of care.

Actim® Pancreatitis

A novel way to diagnose acute pancreatitis on the spot
Actim® Pancreatitis is a unique point-of-care test to reliably screen acute pancreatitis when speed is vital.

Acute pancreatitis is a common inflammatory condition associated with high morbidity, mortality, and hospitalization costs. Early treatment is critical when acute pancreatitis occurs, but the nonspecific symptoms make diagnosis challenging.

Based on trypsinogen-2, the most accurate biomarker available, Actim Pancreatitis is the only test that can identify acute pancreatitis at any phase of inflammation. As a result, severe pancreatitis is diagnosed early, patients can be treated efficiently, and unnecessary treatment, CT-scans, and costs are avoided.

Actim® Fecal Blood

The clean and simple way to find occult blood in feces
Actim® Fecal Blood is an easy-to-use rapid test to detect occult blood in feces – a symptom of severe gastrointestinal diseases. The advanced and unique design of Actim Fecal Blood offers a very user-friendly and hygienic solution for both patients and professionals.

Feces don’t normally contain measurable amounts of blood, thus occult blood in feces is a sign of bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract. This may be caused by, for example, hemorrhoids, but may also be a sign of colorectal cancer.

Actim Fecal Blood is intended to detect bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract even when there are no visible signs. The simple and non-invasive test procedure increases patients’ willingness to take the test. Early diagnosis of occult bleeding is crucial and can lead to life saving treatment.

Actim® Calprotectin

Detect and monitor intestinal inflammation
Actim® Calprotectin is an easy-to-use rapid test for the diagnosis of intestinal inflammation associated with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. The test detects fecal calprotectin, which is a stable and sensitive indicator of IBD.

The prevalence of IBD is rapidly increasing in the Western world. Actim Calprotectin can quickly distinguish IBD from non-inflammatory conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), while avoiding uncomfortable and invasive examinations. Actim Calprotectin is also useful for monitoring disease activity over time, and evaluating patients’ treatment responses.

The Actim Calprotectin test is user-friendly for both patients and healthcare professionals, offering hygienic detection of calprotectin levels. The test can be done simply on the spot, and gives visually interpretable, semiquantitative results in just 10 minutes.

Actim Combi® Hemoglobin Transferrin

Find all gastrointestinal bleeding at once
Actim Combi® Hemoglobin Transferrin is an easy-to-use rapid test for complete detection of gastrointestinal bleeding. The test detects two biomarkers for fecal occult blood: hemoglobin and transferrin. This dual detection reveals bleeding throughout the gastrointestinal tract. The advanced and unique design of Actim Combi Hemoglobin Transferrin offers a very user-friendly and hygienic solution for both patients and professionals.

Feces don’t normally contain measurable amounts of blood, thus occult blood in feces is a sign of bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract. This may be caused by, for example, hemorrhoids, but may also be a sign of colorectal cancer.

Actim Combi Hemoglobin Transferrin is intended to detect bleeding in the whole gastrointestinal tract even when there are no visible signs. The simple and non-invasive test procedure increases patients’ willingness to take the test. Early diagnosis of occult bleeding is crucial and can lead to life saving treatment.
