REF 950030


A highly sensitive chromogenic kit for determination of activated Factor IX activity (FIXa). Suitable for determining the degree of preactivation in recombinant Factor IX products and purified FIX concentrates.

Key characteristics

  • Excellent tool for determining the degree of preactivation in Factor IX preparations.
  • Superior to the NAPTT method for detecting FIXa in recombinant Factor IX preparations*.
  • Stability of Reagents after reconstitution 48 hours at 2-8℃.
  • Limit of quantification about 0.02 mIU/mL Factor IXa.
  • Not intended for analysis of plasma samples.

FIXa Calibrator and FIXa Control

Measurement Principle

FIXa activity in FIX containing samples is determined in a chromogenic method, in which human FX is activated by contaminating human FIXa in the FIX sample in the presence of FVIII, thrombin, calcium ions and phospholipid. The amount of FXa formed is related to the FIXa activity and is determined from the hydrolysis of a chromogenic FXa substrate. The FIXa activity of the sample is assigned vs. a FIXa standard with FIXa activity expressed in International Units (IU).

Kit information

  • Limit of quantification = About 0.02 mIU/mL FIXa.
  • For In Vitro Research Use only.
  • Not intended for analysis of plasma samples.
  • FIXa calibrator and control not included – available as separate products.
