BIOPHEN™ FVIII :C (221402) is a Chromogenic Assay for measuring Factor VIII:C (FVIII:C) in plasma, or in concentrates. In vitro diagnostic use only. Manufactured by HYPHEN BioMed.
When activated by thrombin, Factor VIII:C forms an enzymatic complex with Factor IXa, phospholipids and Calcium, which activates Factor X to Factor Xa. BIOPHEN Factor VIII:C is a chromogenic assay for testing the cofactor activity of Factor VIII:C. In presence of a constant amount of Factor IXa, Phospholipids (PLPs) and Calcium, thrombin activated Factor VIII:C forms an enzymatic complex, which activates Factor X, supplied in the assay at a constant concentration and in excess, to Factor Xa. This activity is directly related to the amount of Factor VIII:C, which is the limiting factor in presence of a constant and in excess amount of Factor IXa. Generated Factor Xa is then exactly measured by its activity on a specific Factor Xa chromogenic substrate (SXa-11). Factor Xa cleaves the substrate and releases pNA. The amount of pNA generated is directly proportional to the Factor Xa activity. Finally, there is a direct relationship between the amount of Factor VIII:C in the assayed sample and the Factor Xa activity generated, measured by the amount of pNA released, determined by color development at 405nm.
