What is the advantage of using the Chromogenix Coamatic® FVIII over a clotting test?

While clotting assays are cheap, rapid, and simple to perform, they are sensitive to pre-activation, show interferences in the assays, and can give overestimation of FVIII concentrates. They also require a considerable amount of FVIII deficient plasma.

Coamatic® FVIII is also rapid and simple, and has additional benefits. It is suited for a wide range of automated instrument applications, there is no heparin influence, and it is highly sensitive, precise and accurate. The low measurement range provides a reliable tool for the classification of bleeders.
