D-DIMER

D-DIMER



The D-Dimer cassette test is an immunochromatographic rapid test for the qualitative detection of D-Dimer in whole blood or plasma. It is useful in the detection of thromboembolic processes.

D-dimer is a type of protein which is produced when a blood clot dissolves in the body. D-Dimer is normally undetectable unless the body is forming or breaking down the blood clots and the level of D-Dimer rises in the blood. D-dimer concentration may be determined by a blood test to help thrombosis diagnosis, and is of clinical use when there is a suspicion of deep venous thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE) or disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC)

D-Dimer Test

D-Dimer is a fibrin degradation product, a small protein fragment present in the blood after blood clot is degraded by fibrinolysis. During coagulation of blood, fibrinogen is metabolised to fibrin by thrombin activation. Fibrin consists of D- and E- units. The cleavage of fibrin leads to the so called D-Dimers.

D-Dimer concentration maybe determined by a blood test to help diagnose thrombosis. It has become an important test performed in patients suspected of thrombotic disorders. While a negative result practically rules out thrombosis, a positive result can indicate thrombosis but does not rule out other potential aetiologies. Its main use, therefore, is to exclude thromboembolic diseases where the probability is low.
