Factor VIII is a glycoprotein mainly synthesized by the liver. It circulates in the plasma in the form bound to VWF which protects it from rapid proteolytic degradation.
It is activated by FXa or thrombin in FVIIIa which will complex with FIXa in the presence of phospholipids to activate FX in FXa. A patient who is deficient in FVIII has hemophilia A.
CRYOcheck ™ Factor Deficient Plasma consist of pools of citrated human normal plasmas which have been depleted into a coagulation factor by immunoadsorption, buffered with HEPES buffer, aliquoted and frozen rapidly.
