Plastinex® (4mL)

BioData Corporation


Plastinex is a lyophilized preparation of rabbit brain thromboplastin, calcium salt, buffers and stabilizers. Upon reconstitution the reagent is a “combined” thromboplastin, containing both the tissue factor and calcium ions required for plasma coagulation by way of the “extrinsic” hemostatic pathway.



Plastinex is for use in performing the one stage prothrombin time (PT) and coagulation factor assays which are based on a modified prothrombin time. The prothrombin time is the method of choice for monitoring oral anticoagulation therapy.
