" The significant increase of deaths due to myocardial infarction (MI) is directly related to lifestyle and the increase of the level of its risk factors. The efforts of researchers have recently focused on finding ways to prevent and reduce the damages occurred after the occurrence of MI. Currently, the focus on measuring cardiac biomarkers has an important role in early diagnosis and prevention of irreparable damages of cardiac myocard. This study has explored the cardiac biomarkers troponin I (TnI) and troponin T (TnT) in terms of structures and their important role in MI. Also, the importance of measuring troponin, measurement methods and a comparison among different measurement methods are pointed out. Finally, the new methods and approaches for measuring and comparing new measurement methods, their advantages and properties are mentioned."
