Cephalinex® (3mL)

APTT Reagent (Silica Activated) — C/N 101162

Cephalinex is a lyophilized preparation of rabbit brain cephalin and particulate (microsilica) activator. Cephalinex supplies the phospholipid platelet substitute and negatively charged surface required for plasma coagulation by way of the “intrinsic” hemostatic pathway.

Net Contents: 20 x 3.0mL


Product Overview

Cephalinex is for use in performing an activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) and coagulation factor assays which are based on a modified APTT. The APTT is the most widely used method for monitoring intravenous heparin anticoagulation therapy. It is also a fundamental screening test for deficiencies or abnormalities of the intrinsic coagulation factors VIII, IX, XI, XIII, and factors common to both the intrinsic and extrinsic pathways: I (fibrinogen), II, V, X. When used in conjunction with deficient substrate plasma, the APTT provides the basis for the quantification of specific coagulation factors.
