Affinity Biologicals Presents New Health Canada & CE Marked Plasmas for Diagnostic Use and Hemostasis Research in Canada & Europe
Ancaster, ON – Affinity Biologicals Inc., a leading name in diagnostics and research, especially hemostasis research, has recently announced the launching of their new Factor Deficient Plasma page that features their new Health Canada and CE Marked plasmas. The key products in this new line of plasmas include the Factor VIII Deficient and the Factor IX Deficient.
According to Affinity Biologicals, “The VisuDep-F Frozen Factor VIII Deficient Plasma is intended for use as a substrate plasma in the quantitative determination of Factor VIII activity in citrated plasmas using a clot-based assay.” Likewise, “The VisuDep-F Frozen Factor IX Deficient Plasma is intended for use as a substrate plasma in the quantitative determination of Factor IX activity in citrated plasmas using a clot-based assay.”
Both plasmas have a distinct biological importance. Hemophilia A, a congenial bleeding disorder that occurs primarily in males results from an X-chromosome-linked deficiency of FVIII. The VisuDep-F Frozen Factor VIII Deficient Plasma helps identify the FVIII insufficiency. Haemophilia B, otherwise known as the Christmas Factors, is an X-linked congenial bleeding disease resulting from low activity of Factor IX. The VisuDep-F Frozen Factor IX Deficient Plasma detects low activity of this antigen in order to help find a permanent solution.
