Human prothrombin IgA ELISA kit is an in-vitro quantitative method for detecting levels of IgA auto-antibodies to prothrombin Ab (anti-prothrombin-IgA) in human plasma and serum. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.0 U/ml.
Prothrombin is a carbohydrate-protein compound which is an important component of the process of blood clotting, it is essentially a glycoprotein that is present in the blood plasma. Prothrombin is converted to thrombin with the help of prothrombinase (factor X), thrombin then acts in order to transformed fibrinogen into fibrin. Platelets and fibrin are responsible for forming clots (this process is known as coagulation). Under normal circumstances, fibrin and blood clots are only formed in response to bleeding. A deficiency in prothrombin (called hypoprothrombinemia) is defined by its prolonged bleeding tendency. The following prothrombin IgA ELISA kit can be used for a variety of diagnostic applications.
The minimum detection sensitivity level of IgA antibodies to human prothrombin (anti-prothrombin-IgA) using current human prothrombin IgA ELISA kit was 1.0 U/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 6.3 – 100.0 U/ml.
