ACTICLOT® LA Complete™
ACTICLOT® LA Complete™ is a combined kit for dRVVT and dilute PT Lupus Anticoagulant (LA) testing. This is the only kit that tests for LA in both the extrinsic and common pathways. Because LA can originate in all three coagulation pathways (intrinsic, common and extrinsic), this kit increases the sensitivity and specificity of an LA Panel.
The kit uses common reagents (buffer and high phospholipid) for the dRVVT and dilute PT assays, giving users the economy of not purchasing duplicate reagents. The kit also reduces testing turn-around time and reduces instrument set ups and corresponding labor costs. It includes the only commercial dilute PT reagents in the world. (C Marking and FDA Clearance).
Still Using BSA? Try Prionex®
Prionex® The BSA Alternative™ is a superior alternative to BSA and HSA. In protein stabilization, it has been shown to maintain the activity of proteins and enzymes during heat exposure, lyophilization, and in longterm storage studies. It has been used in assay procedures to prevent nonspecific binding and as an additive in cell culture. Unlike BSA, Prionex is safe and easy to work with. It is water soluble, consistent from lot-to-lot, non-antigenic, additive-free and prion-free. Prionex is only available as a 10% solution in 100 mL and 1 L containers. Manufactured by DNP Branch Pentapharm.

Titin Antibody (TitinAb) ELISA Test Kit†
KRONUS®, a leading provider of specialized autoimmune diagnostic test kits, is pleased to announce the availability of a new ELISA test kit for the measurement of antibodies to titin (TitinAb). Titin is a protein of the striated muscles with an extremely high molecular weight. The immunogenic region of titin is located on a 30kD protein fragment. Antibodies against this fragment presumably cross-react with the epitopes of the acetylcholine receptors making their measurement potentially useful in select indications. This new ELISA utilizes recombinant MGT30 peptide providing for the accurate and specific determination of titin antibodies.
