The Thrombin Processing Device is a sterile blood processing disposable that prepares activated thrombin from a small aliquot of plasma in less than 30 minutes.
The intrinsic threshold of the fibrinolytic system is modulated by basic carboxypeptidases, but the magnitude of the antifibrinolytic effect of activated thrombin activable fibrinolyis inhibitor is masked by its instability.
Absorbance at 405 nm increases with the formation of activated thrombin, and the result is determined on the basis of the time taken for this absorbance to increase by 0.
