Reagents, Hematology, Coagulation, Thrombophilia Marker, Beta-Thromboglobulin
Definition : Hematology reagents used for qualitative and/or quantitative determination in plasma of thromboglobulin, a platelet-specific protein that is usually released simultaneously with platelet factor 4. Beta-thromboglobulin binds and inactivates heparin and blocks the release of prostacyclin; increased levels in blood may indicate the occurrence of thrombosis (i.e., it is considered a thrombophilia marker).
