Dia-PT LIQUID

INTENDED USE 

(For In Vitro Diagnostic Use Only)
Dia-PT LIQUID) is a liquid ready to use rabbit brain thromboplastin used for determination of Prothrombin Time (PT).

 

SUMMARY AND PRINCIPLE 

Dia-PT-liquid thromboplastin is a rabbit brain extract, which contains tissue factor, lipids and calcium ions. The PT according to Quick is a sensitive screening test for the extrinsic coagulation pathway. Dia-PT LIQUID as a reagent for PT is highly sensitive to vitamin K antagonists, decreased level of factors in extrinsic pathway (factor II, V, VII, and X), hereditary or acquired coagulation disorders and liver failure. Therefore, the PT by Dia-PT LIQUID is optimally used for presurgical screening and monitoring for oral anticoagulant therapy (OAT) also. Dia-PT LIQUID reagent with the corresponding deficient plasmas is also suitable for determination of activity of extrinsic coagulation pathway (factor II, V, VII and X).
