Innovation in D-dimer testing that goes beyond the expected

Download white paper




The INNOVANCE® D-Dimer Assay is a particle-enhanced immunoturbidimetric assay for the quantitative determination of cross-linked fibrin degradation products (D-dimers). The INNOVANCE D-Dimer Assay is indicated for use in conjunction with a clinical pretest probability (PTP) assessment model to exclude deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) in outpatients suspected of DVT or PE. The INNOVANCE D-Dimer Assay can be used for the monitoring of the relative change in D-dimer concentration.1

Features & Benefits

  • Stable reagents (4 weeks at 2–8°C) allow economical operation.
  • Assay robustness combined with clinical efficiency eliminates the need for a dedicated D-dimer testing system.

  • Fast turnaround time (11 minutes or less) improves daily throughput to enhance efficiency.
  • Efficient, fully automated processing for reduced manual preparation and sample dilution.

  • Validated diagnostic sensitivity of ≥98% allows exclusion of DVT and PE.
  • Excellent clinical performance permits a broader spectrum of clinical diagnosis, monitoring, and follow-up.
