Technoclone Coagulation Control AK is a control plasma for use as an accuracy control for oral anticoagulant research. The plasma is prepared from donors who had been on long-term anticoagulants and therefore contains PIVKA proteins. The plasma is externally calibrated for most thromboplastins.

Coagulation Control AK is prepared from plasma of subjects stabilized on long-term oral anticoagulants. Therefore the factors of the prothrombin complex (II, VII, IX and X) have the same coagulation activity as plasma from subjects on oral anticoagulants. The PIVKA inhibitors (Proteins induced by Vitamin K Absence) are present in Coagulation Control AK as they are in subject’s plasma. Coagulation Control AK contains stabilizers but no bactericide additives.
