D-dimerAn assay with a clinically validated claim to exclude pulmonary embolism

The D-dimer assay on the Stratus® CS Analyzer is an in vitro diagnostic test for the quantitative measurement of cross-linked fibrin degradation products (D-dimer) in human citrated or heparinized plasma. The Stratus CS D-dimer assay is intended for use in conjunction with a non-high clinical pretest probability (PTP) assessment model to exclude pulmonary embolism (PE) disease and as an aid in the diagnosis of venous thromboembolism (VTE) [deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE).]

  • Rapid turnaround time - in as little as 14 min. (with on-board centrifugation)
  • Single use TestPak Cartridges significantly reduce contamination and open stability issues, reducing reagent waste
  • A negative D-dimer test in conjunction with a low pre-test probability score can exclude PE and may reduce unnecessary diagnostic imaging
