Thrombin time measurement is the time it takes for a fibrin clot to form after reagent addition, results are reported in seconds. If the clotting time of a sample is prolonged beyond the reference range, the level or activity of fibrinogen is low or thrombin inhibitors may be present.
Thrombin time is used :
- to qualitatively detect fibrinogen abnormalities.
- to assess the effectiveness of fibrinolytic treatment.
This reagent is standardized for the time of thrombin produced from bovine thrombin for the normal and therapeutic ranges (heparin and fibrinolytic).
- Adaptable to analyzer
- Allows a large number of tests to be carried out
- 6 vials x 6 mL of lyophilized plasma
