UPTT is a standardized preparation of lyophilized rabbit brain cephalin. The standardized rabbit brain phospholipids concentration is ≤ 0.1%. The UPTT reagent supplies the phospholipids required to measure intrinsic coagulation pathway activation.
» UPTT is for use in performing a NON-ACTIVATED Partial Thromboplastin Time Test (PTT). In hemocompatibility studies, the PTT measures contact activation of the intrinsic coagulation system. » The NON-ACTIVATED PTT is a widely used test for measuring the contact activation of plasma coagulation factors.
» UPTT meets the requirement for hemocompatibility assessment specified in regulatory standards including ASTM F2382-01,04,12, FDA Blue Book Memo E95-1 and ISO 10993-4.
