Intended use
Specimen collection
This kit is for the quantitative determination of Protein C activity in human citrated plasma.
Nine parts of freshly drawn venous blood are collected into one part trisodium citrate.

Protein C is a vitamin K dependent plasma protein which plays an important role in the anticoagulant regulatory mechanisms. It circulates as a zymogen and is converted to an Samples are evaluated based on this standard curve. An example of a typical standard Quality control

APC regulates the coagulation system by proteolytic cleavage and Normal and abnormal controls are recommended for a complete quality control inactivation of activated factors V and VIII.

Each laboratory should establish its own mean and standard deviation and deficiency has been shown to be a risk factor for development of venous thrombosis.

Protein C in plasma is activated by a specific enzyme from Southern Copperhead Snake venom. The amount of activated protein C is determined by the rate of hydrolysis of thechromogenic substrate S-2366. The pNA release measured at 405 nm is proportional to Protein C results are reported in activity (%).
