Industry News: Demystify chromogenic testing

20 Oct 2020


For laboratories wishing to accurately quantify Factor VIII activity, there is now a ready-to-use Chromogenic Factor VIII Assay. The CRYOcheck™ assay is designed for ease of use and minimization of reagent waste. The assay is intended to identify Factor VIII deficiency and aid in the management of haemophilia A.

Available in the UK exclusively from Alpha Laboratories, the new kit developed by Precision BioLogic offers a validated protocol.

CRYOcheck Chromogenic Factor VIII is the only chromogenic assay offered in a frozen format.  The vials are simply thawed in a standard water bath, loaded onto an automated coagulation analyser, and they ready to go!  With only four separate components, provided in convenient colour coded vials, running the assay is very straight forward. 

The CRYOcheck Chromogenic Factor VIII assay is suitable for both high and low volumes of testing. It can be scaled up in the lab for high volume testing, and the ability to store unused reagents refrigerated for up to 5 days, or frozen for up to 1 month, makes the kit perfect for low volume testing too. The kit offers total flexibility in Factor VIII activity testing.
