This product is specific for human D-dimer and high molecular weight fibrin degradation products, but does not cross-react with fibrinogen (D-monomer).
D-dimers are the principle degradation products of cross-linked fibrin, released into the bloodstream following the digestion of fibrin clots (thrombus) by the enzyme plasmin, and thus measurement of the level of D-dimer in plasma, can be used as an indication of thrombotic disorders. Conditions in which levels of D-dimer are elevated include deep vein thrombosis (DVT), venous thromboembolism (VTE), cardiovascular disease and disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), a possible acute condition arising from surgical operations, septic shock and liver disease.
Store at +4 °C or at -20 °C if preferred.

This product should be stored undiluted. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
