D DIMER test thrombosis or pulmonary embolism, D-DIMER Cleartest whole blood TVT LE DIC
A reliable test for suspected thrombosis or pulmonary embolism, for example
Excessively high D-dimer values can indicate leg vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, excessive blood clotting (disseminated intravascular coagulation), malignant tumors, leukemia or severe liver cirrhosis. Values that are too low have no clinical significance.
Here are the details D DIMER test thrombosis or pulmonary embolism of the test:
The detection limit is 500 ng/ml.
Evaluation exactly after 10 minutes.
Storage at 2 - 30 °C.
Individual portion vials for the buffer solution are included in the kit,
therefore no carryover and sufficient reagent for each cassette.
Important D DIMER test thrombosis or pulmonary embolism NOTE:
In patients with acute chest pain and shortness of breath, an elevated level of D-dimer and the absence of typical cardiac marker changes indicate a pulmonary embolism.
The product D-dimer is formed during the cleavage of the protein fibrin, which is of decisive importance for plasmatic blood coagulation. When blood begins to clot in the body, the concentration of D-dimer in the blood increases. This test allows the exclusion of pulmonary embolism (PE), deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or disseminated intravascular coagulopathy (DIC). In the case of D-dimer, it should be noted that the diagnostic value of the test decreases as the patient ages. Scientists have developed a formula for extrapolating the cut-off: "Age in years x 10 micrograms per liter", but further diagnostics are always necessary for values over 500 micrograms per liter.
