The ACTICLOT® dPT™ by American Diagnostica Inc is the first dilute Prothrombin Time test kit and comes with a high phospholipids reagent for confirmation of a positive dPT lupus anticoagulant (LA) screening test. The new test kit identifies LAs that affect coagulation initiated by tissue factor-mediated activation of the extrinsic pathway. Clinical studies show that the ACTICLOT dPT identifies LA patients that were not detected by aPTT and dRVVT tests. The kit includes the dPT Activator and its companion reagent, LA Phospholipids, for confirmation of positive screen result. The test can be run simultaneously on most automated analyzers alongside other LA tests.
