Chromogenic identification of factor VIII deficiency
For laboratories wishing to quantify factor VIII activity, a ready-to-use chromogenic factor VIII assay is now available from Alpha Laboratories. The CRYOcheck assay is designed for ease of use and to minimise reagent waste.
Available in the UK exclusively from Alpha Laboratories, the new kit developed by Precision BioLogic offers a validated protocol, and is intended to identify factor VIII deficiency and aid in the management of haemophilia A.
CRYOcheck Chromogenic Factor VIII is the only chromogenic assay offered in a frozen format. The vials are simply thawed in a standard water bath, and loaded onto an automated coagulation analyser. With only four separate components, provided in convenient colour-coded vials, running the assay is straightforward.
The CRYOcheck Chromogenic Factor VIII assay can be scaled up in the laboratory for high-volume testing, and the ability to store unused reagents refrigerated for up to five days, or frozen for up to one month, makes the kit perfect for low-volume testing too. The kit offers total flexibility in factor VIII activity testing.
