Fibrinogen Degradation Products Determination Reagent

Fibrinogen Degradation Products(FDP) Determination Reagent(Latex Immunoturbidimetry) is an in vitro diagnostic quantitative test kit. Fibrin Degradation Products (FDP) that occur are very heterogeneous and include products derived from fibrin, soluble complexes, degradation products from fibrinogen, and from nonstabilized fibrin. The presence FDP of in plasma can provide important information for the diagnosis of hemostatic disorders. Increased FDPs are seen in primary fibrinolysis as well as during fibrin clot breakdown. Elevated FDP levels are a hallmark finding in disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). Elevated FDP levels are not specific for DIC and increased FDP levels are often seen in primary fibrinolysis, severe liver disease, including alcoholic cirrhosis, eclampsia, during acute thrombotic episodes.
