i-Chroma D-Dimer

D dimer is a fibrin degradation product (or FDP), a small protein fragment present in the blood after a blood clot is degraded by fibrinolysis. It is so named because it contains two D fragments of the fibrin protein joined by a cross-link.Blood clots generally start to slowly break down after they are formed, and this process releases D-dimer into the blood.  D-Dimer levels in healthy individuals is only of negligible amounts. Increased D-dimer levels indicate increased fibrinolysis or inability to clear the products from the circulation.The D-dimer test is routinely used in the first-line assessment of patients suspected of suffering venous thromboembolism (VTE), which can present as either deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE) (https://acutecaretesting.org)

The Plasma D-dimer level has proven to be useful for DVT screening in chronic stroke patients undergoing rehabilitation and is also well known to be an important prognostic indicator of heart diseases.

This is an immunofluorescence for the rapid and quantitative determination of D-Dimer dedicated to the I-Chroma instrument commonly used to exclude thromboembolic disease in outpatients suspected of having deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonaryembolism (PE).
