IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Hematology, Coagulation Factor
Definition : Hematology reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses on a sample of body fluids (typically plasma) to determine one of the factors involved in a series of reactions that results in the formation of fibrin (i.e., formation of a visible coagulum). Coagulation factors are designated by Roman numerals, but frequently they are also designated by descriptive names such as fibrinogen (factor I), prothrombin (factor II), and thromboplastin (factor III); the activated forms of the factors are designated by adding a letter "a" to the factor (e.g., XIIa).
