Carry out semi-quantitative detection of fibrin and fibrinogen degradation products in human serum and urine using Thermo Scientific™ Thrombo-Wellcotest™ Rapid Latex Agglutination Test.
The test is designed as a slide agglutination method in which one drop of sample and one drop of latex suspension are mixed. A distinct agglutination pattern at the end of the test period indicates the presence of 2μg/ml FDP or more in the sample under test. By assaying samples at two different dilutions, an approximate FDP value can be determined.
Capable of detecting the presence of all the major breakdown products of fibrin or fibrinogen. The levels measured by this latex test correlate well with results obtained with a haemagglutination-inhibition immunoassay.
