INNOVANCE DTI Assay Kit Components
INNOVANCE DTI Assay kit
SMN/Catalog no.: 10873467/OPOH03
Package size: 4 x 5 mL Reagent, 4 x 2 mL Substrate, 4 x 5.5 mL Diluent
Intended use: The INNOVANCE DTI Assay is an in vitro diagnostic reagent for the quantitative determination of the direct thrombin inhibitor (DTI) dabigatran concentration to aid in the detection of dabigatran and quantification of the anticoagulant status in patients under therapy with dabigatran in human sodium citrated plasma by means of automated, chromogenic methods. For determination of dabigatran, no international reference preparation or method is available.
Available on Siemens Healthineers and Sysmex Systems

Why your lab should perform DTI testing for anticoagulants
To monitor and manage bleeding risks, labs are asked to help safeguard anticoagulant therapies such as heparin or direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) by testing patients for a growing number of agents.
Why accurate DOAC assessment is imperative
DOACs are available in two main forms: direct inhibitors of factor Xa (such as rivaroxaban and apixaban) or direct inhibitors of thrombin (e.g., dabigatran). Though the medication usually does not require monitoring, DOAC testing is needed to properly manage individuals with bleeding conditions, in emergency situations that require unplanned surgery, and with relevant comorbidities (e.g., renal insufficiency).
Why the INNOVANCE DTI Assay is the better choice for dabigatran testing
The INNOVANCE DTI Assay provides specific, reliable dabigatran results you can trust, showing great correlation to liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) by using an automated chromogenic method principle. It is available for use with no wait time and minimal preparation. Due to the composition of the reagent, the assay is not influenced by the presence of therapeutic doses of unfractionated heparin (UFH) or low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH). Its long onboard stability allows testing to occur when needed, and the extended, once-opened stability of its components makes the assay cost-effective, with minimal waste. Get the reliable, timely dabigatran testing you need.
