Factor IX Antigen Kit

ELISA Kits

The VisuLize™ FIX Antigen Kit is intended to quantitatively measure Factor IX (FIX) antigen in human plasma and factor concentrates. The biological importance of FIX is demonstrated in hemophilia B (Christmas disease), an X-linked congenital bleeding disease resulting from a quantitative (low activity and low antigen) or qualitative (low activity and normal antigen) defect in FIX function. The congenital deficiency of FIX may be classified as severe (1% FIX activity), moderate (between 1 and 5% FIX activity) or mild (between 5 and 40% FIX activity). The laboratory diagnosis of FIX deficiency typically involves quantitative determinations of procoagulant levels i.e., functional activity of FIX.¹ An ELISA for FIX antigen may be used in conjunction with functional assays in the area of gene therapy, assessment of FIX concentrates, determination of carrier status as well as distinguishing those patients with cross-reactive material (i.e., low functional activity but near normal antigen levels of FIX).

Features

  • Rapid sandwich ELISA to measure FIX antigen (FIX:Ag)
  • 70 minutes total incubation time
  • FIX:Ag reported as International Units/mL traceable to WHO standard for FIX antigen
  • Detection limit to 0.005 IU/mL FIX:Ag (0.5%)
  • Includes normal and low controls

Applications

  • Quantification of FIX in plasma and therapeutic concentrates
  • Diagnosis and characterization of hemophilia B
  • Carrier testing for hemophilia B
  • Thrombophilia screening
