Prothrombin is a glycoprotein that is vital during blood clotting and it is a carbohydrate-protein compound present in blood plasma. They can be converted to thrombin and this can transform fibrinogen into fibrin. Coagulation is a process whereby fibrin and platelets form clots. In standard circumstances it is only during bleeding that fibrin and blood clots are produced. There is also a tendency for prolonged bleeding if there is a deficiency in prothrombin, this is commonly referred to as hypoprothrombinemia.
Human prothrombin IgG/IgM ELISA kit is designed for in-vitro quantitative analysis of IgG and IgM autoantibodies to prothrombin in human serum and plasma. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.0 U/ml.
The minimum detection sensitivity level of human prothrombin IgG and IgM autoantibodies using this human prothrombin IgG/IgM ELISA kit was 1.0 U/ml. The dynamic assay range for this kit is 6.3 – 100.0 U/ml.
