D-dimer reagent launched for haemostasis range

HORIBA UK Medical has launched a D-dimer parameter for its Yumizen G haemostasis range of instruments. The new Yumizen G DDi 2 (D-dimer) reagent kit offers a key measurement and reference exclusion test for the diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). It can also be used for monitoring the progress and effectiveness of treatment for disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC).

HORIBA Medical’s new D-dimer reagent kit is available for its full range of coagulation instruments. The dedicated haemostasis portfolio includes the fully automatic Yumizen G800, Yumizen G1500 and Yumizen G1550, as well as semi-automatic Yumizen G200 and Yumizen G400 analysers. Using antibody-coated latex particles and measured via the immunoturbidimetric channels of these Yumizen G instruments, the new reagent kit delivers D-dimer results consistency across the range.

The D-dimer assay, when used on very compact coagulation screening platforms such as the Yumizen G400DDi and Yumizen G200, which also have combined immunoturbidimetric and chromogenic assay capabilities, is ideal for small laboratories, ‘hot labs’, and as a back-up. On these semi-automatic systems, the Yumizen G DDi 2 reagent kit offers an innovative combination of immunoturbidimetric test capability and precalibrated ready-to-use reagent.
