We read the article with great interest, as a possible alternative to the method incorporating reptilase (2) that is routinely used in our laboratory, which uses plasma for PE when no serum sample from a patient is available.
Additionally, the sale includes the divestiture of the company's product Reptilase.
Thrombin and reptilase times should be used to screen the very rare cases of dysfibrinogenemia associated with an increased risk of thrombosis.

Reptilase is not inhibited by heparin, and the effect of FDPs on reptilase is minimal.
This mutation is the most commonly reported cause of dysfibrinogenemia and, like other dysfibrinogenemias, is readily detected because of the associated prolonged thrombin and reptilase times [1-3].
It is a rare disorder (prevalence of 1% among selected thrombosis patients), most commonly identified by an abnormal Reptilase [R] time and (or) thrombin time.
Independent of the cause, dysfibrinogenemia is diagnosed by determination of the plasma concentration of fibrinogen and a functional test such as thrombin or reptilase time.
