Key Benefits of the Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (aPTT) reagent
The Randox methodology has been compared with other commercially available methods and the Randox Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (aPTT) assay showed a correlation coefficient of 0.95
Liquid ready-to-use Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (aPTT) reagents
The Randox aPTT reagent comes in a liquid format which is more convenient as the reagent does not need to be reconstituted which aids in reducing, the risk of errors occurring
The aPTT assay has a precision of less than 2% CV so results are consistent

What is Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (aPTT) assay used for?
Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (aPTT) is one of several effective screening tests of the intrinsic coagulation pathway and the common final pathway. The aPTT test is useful for patients with a bleeding tendency. The clotting factors involved are prekallikrein; high-molecular-weight kininogen; fibrinogen; and factors XII, XI, IX, VIII, II, V, and X.
Activated Partial Thromboplastin (aPTT) can also be used to evaluate the effect of therapy in procoagulant disorders and as the basis for several factor assays. The aPTT test has been widely used as a test for monitoring and regulating heparin therapy. aPTT is also sensitive to decreased concentrations of Fletcher and Fitzgerald Factors I, II, V, VIII, IX, X, XI and XII.

Depending on why the test is being carried out, other blood tests may need to be incorporated to aid in measuring how well the patient’s blood is clotting. Randox Reagents offer:
