LUPUS ANTICOAGULANT CONFIRMATION
REAGENT™ (LACR) Platelet Extract Reagent
Lupus Anticoagulant Confirmation Reagent™ is a platelet phospholipid solution used to perform the platelet neutralization procedure. Use of the LA-CR test kit confirms that previous laboratory results have correctly flagged a sample as containing the lupus anticoagulant.
Optimized Source of Human Phosphatidyl Platelet Phospholipids
Used to Perform Platelet Neutralization Procedure (PNP) Needed as Part of a Multi-Test Investigation for the Presence of the Lupus Anticoagulant
Meets ISTH Guidelines for Confirmatory Testing by Providing Additional
Phospholipids to Patient Sample and Control Plasma
The most common cause of an UNDETERMINED prolonged APTT is the presence of the lupus anticoagulant in the plasma. The inhibitory activity is demonstrable in phospholipid dependent coagulation reactions, but is observed more often in the APTT than in the Prothrombin Time (PT). The addition of Lupus Anticoagulant Confirmation Reagent will shorten the APTT time that is prolonged in the presence of the lupus anticoagulant. Thus, the platelet neutralization procedure system is a valuable diagnostic test to differentiate lupus anticoagulant from a specific factor inhibitor (e.g. Factor VIII inhibitor).
