Cephalinex is a lyophilized preparation of rabbit brain cephalin and particulate (microsilica) activator. Cephalinex supplies the phospholipid platelet substitute and negatively charged surface required for plasma coagulation by way of the “intrinsic” hemostatic pathway.
» Rabbit brain cephalin with microsilica activator
» Perform Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time, (APTT)
» Evaluate the “intrinsic” hemostatic pathway, factors VIII, IX, XI, XIII
» Evaluate factors I (fibrinogen), II, V, X common to both “intrinsic” and “extrinsic” pathways
» Lyophilized for long term storage and stability
