The development of the first chromogenic peptide substrate S-2160 in the early Seventies, initiated the introduction of photometry in hematology. Today, Chromogenix has a wide range of chromogenic peptide substrates as well as complete assay kits with applications extending from routine analysis to front line research in both coagulation and fibrinolysis. The tests can be performed manually or on automated analytical systems with high specificity, sensitivity and accuracy. Important, non-chromogenic-based products include kits for APC resistance (an APTT test).
