Test ID: DABIE    
Dabigatran, Ecarin, Plasma

Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference

The dabigatran, Ecarin chromogenic assay is performed on the Instrumentation Laboratory ACL TOP 700 using the Diagnostica Stago ECA II kit. The STA ECA II kit is a chromogenic assay based on the cleavage of prothrombin by ecarin to meizothrombin which then enzymatically cleaves the paranitroanaline (pNA) from the chromogenic substrate resulting in a measureable colorometric change.(Package insert: STA -CA II. Diagnostica Stago S.A.S; Revision 09/2015)
