    August 18, 2004 10:29 a.m.

    ABBOTT PARK, Ill. -- Abbott Laboratories (ABT) received U.S. approval to sell its Troponin-I cardiac marker for use in heart attack diagnostic tests.

    In a press release Wednesday, Abbott said the Food and Drug Administration granted 510(k) approval to use Troponin-I with the company's Architect line of blood and urine tests.

    Abbott expects to start domestic shipment of the system later this month. The healthcare concern launched the system overseas in April.
