- Reconstitute the contents of APTT with 4,0 mL of distilled water.
- Replace the stopper and thoroughly mix the vial contents. Let stand for no less than 30 minutes prior to use to assure complete hydration of the contents.
The capacity of blood to form a fibrin clot by means of the intrinsic hemostatic pathway requires coagulation factors I, II, V, VIII, IX, X, XI and XII, platelet lipids and calcium4. The assay is performed by the addition in the sample of a suspension of rabbit brain cephalin with a surface activator1.
The APTT has proven to be a simple and highly reliable measurement of the intrinsic coagulation mechanism5.
Rabbit brain cephalin and ellagic acid activator with buffer. Stabilizers and preservatives.
