The D-Dimer Rapid Test is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of D-dimer in human whole blood or plasma. It is intended to be used as a screening test and as an aid in the diagnosis of disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Any reactive specimen with the D-Dimer Rapid Test Cassette (Whole Blood/Plasma) must be confirmed with alternative testing method(s) and clinical findings.
Acute cardiac ailments can be catastrophic to patient health and warrant urgent diagnosis and intervention. Timely detection of cardiac markers, which are released into the bloodstream after cardiac injury such as a myocardial infarction (MI), can help clinicians in making treatment choices. However, these markers are released within a certain time frame after a MI, thus requiring rapid and sensitive technologies to detect their presence.
D-dimer is a protein fragment from the breakdown of a blood clot. Blood clots generally start to slowly break down after they are formed, and this process releases D-dimer into the blood. An elevated D-dimer level is not normal. If you are having significant formation and breakdown of blood clot in your body, D-dimer may be elevated.
