CEPHALINEX® Activated PTT Reagent
Cephalinex® Advances APTT Monitoring in Coagulation Studies
Cephalinex® is a lyophilized preparation of rabbit brain cephalin and particulate (microsilica) activator. Cephalinex supplies the platelet phospholipid substitute and negatively charged surface required for plasma coagulation to occur by way of the intrinsic hemostatic pathway.
Perform Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time
Monitor Intravenous Heparin Anticoagulation Therapy
Screen for Deficiencies or Abnormalities of Coagulation Factors
Lyophilized for Long Term Storage & Stability
Cephalinex® represents a groundbreaking lyophilized preparation derived from rabbit brain cephalin and a microsilica activator. This innovative formulation plays a pivotal role in facilitating plasma coagulation through the intrinsic hemostatic pathway. By serving as a platelet phospholipid substitute and providing a negatively charged surface, Cephalinex® ensures the essential elements for effective coagulation are in place.
Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (APTT) assessments are seamlessly conducted with Cephalinex®, allowing for precise monitoring of the intrinsic capability of blood to form a fibrin clot. This comprehensive evaluation encompasses the intrinsic coagulation factors XII (Hageman), XI (plasma thromboplastin antecedent), IX (Christmas), VIII (anti-hemophiliac), X (Stuart-Prower), V (proaccelerin), II (prothrombin), I (fibrinogen), along with platelet phospholipid and calcium.
In addition to its role in APTT, Cephalinex® proves indispensable in the vigilant monitoring of Intravenous Heparin Anticoagulation Therapy. This crucial application ensures the therapeutic efficacy of heparin, a vital anticoagulant, and contributes to the overall management of coagulation-related conditions.
Furthermore, Cephalinex® serves as a valuable tool in screening for deficiencies or abnormalities of coagulation factors. By offering a comprehensive assessment of these factors, healthcare professionals can identify potential issues and tailor treatment strategies to address specific coagulation challenges.
To enhance convenience and flexibility, Cephalinex® is lyophilized, ensuring long-term storage and stability. This characteristic not only facilitates ease of use but also ensures that the product remains potent and effective over an extended period, contributing to the reliability of coagulation testing procedures.
Cephalinex® stands as a multifaceted and advanced solution in the realm of coagulation management, offering a versatile platform for APTT assessment, Intravenous Heparin Anticoagulation Therapy monitoring, and comprehensive screening for coagulation factor deficiencies. Its lyophilized nature further underscores its commitment to long-term storage and stability, making it an invaluable asset in the field of hemostasis management.
