Product derived from Echis carinatus venom in lyophilized form.

MW(Da) : 55 000 à 60 000 Ecarin is a snake (Echis carinatus) venom that directly activates prothrombin to meizothrombin. The use of the measurement of the coagulation time by ecarin allows the biological monitoring of the anticoagulant by hirudin. The meizothrombin can then bind stoichiometrically to the hirudin to be assayed. Coagulation only takes place when all of the hirudin is bound to meizothrombin.
