Heparin test kits designed for USP and EP compliant testing of Anti-IIa and Anti-Xa activity of heparin and LMW heparin including Enoxaparin Sodium. Supplied by Provision Kinetics, USA.
The versatile, highly reliable kits have a wide range of uses including pharmaceutical applications like quality control or medical device and research testing, as well as test adaptations for heparin-coated devices.
The Kinetichrome heparin test kits are designed for the chromogenic measurement of the anti-factor IIa (thrombin) and/or anti-factor Xa activity in samples containing heparin, low molecular weight heparin and related molecules with thrombin and/or factor Xa inhibitor activity.
A distinctive feature of the Kinetichome product line is that these kits are designed and optimized for activity measurements with buffer as the reaction medium, rather than plasma. Thus, the Kinetichrome heparin test kits are ideally suited for research, industrial, and pharmacopeial test applications where buffer is the specified test medium.
New heparin assay guidelines from European Pharmacopeia.
The 8th edition of the European Pharmacopoeia, supplement 8.3, issued on 1st July 2014 and coming into effect from 1st January 2015 has new guidelines on chromogenic assays for anti-IIa and anti-Xa activities
Provision Kinetics has modified their Xa Heparin test kits in order to FULLY conform with the EP directives – accordingly, the XAE-100 and XAE-200 Heparin Test Kits are available now. The IIa Heparin Test Kits are already compatible the ruling.
The kits have 100 and 200 determinations when in optimal conditions on an automated haemostasis instrument, if you are using the manual test method(s) on a lab bench it is more realistic to expect about 50 determinations from a 100 determination kit and 100 from a 200 determination kit.
We have programs/applications available for major haemostasis instrument platforms including:
Instrumentation Laboratory (IL) product line
Diagnostica Stago (Stago) line
Sysmex line (Siemens in the US)
