Reptilase Time, Plasma
Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
The reptilase time assay is performed on the Beckman Coulter ACL TOP. Patient plasma is combined with a Reptilase reagent containing a thrombin-like enzyme triggering the coagulation process in the mixture. Time to clot formation is measured optically using a wavelength of 405 nm.(Owen CA, Bowie EJW, Thompson JH: Tests of hemostasis and blood coagulation. In The Diagnosis of Bleeding Disorders. Second edition. Boston, MA, Little, Brown and Company, 1975, pp 85-154)
Day(s) and Time(s) Test Performed Outlines the days and times the test is performed. This field reflects the day and time the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time required before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means assays are performed several times during the day.
