D-Dimers are fragments resulting from the destruction of fibrin during fibrinolysis.
A low level of D-Dimer is normal and indicates that there has been activation of coagulation and formation of a clot, but can sharply increase in cases of venous thrombosis, DIC (disseminated intravascular coagulation) or pulmonary embolism.
The Technoleia® D-Dimer latex kit test comprises an anti-D-Dimer monoclonal antibody coupled to the latex microparticles and forms a high molecular weight complex with the D-Dimers of the sample.
This results in a photometrically detectable change in turbidimetry of the sample which is directly proportional to the concentration of antigens within the sample.
This calibrator is used to construct the reference curve.
The remaining calibrators and controls can be aliquoted and frozen. Stability 1 month at -20 °C.
