The new Yumizen G DDi 2 (D-Dimer) reagent kit offers a key measurement and reference exclusion test for the diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). It can also be used for monitoring the progress and effectiveness of treatment of Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (DIC).

HORIBA Medical’s new D-Dimer reagent kit is available for its full range of coagulation instruments which covers the needs of any laboratory. The dedicated hemostasis portfolio includes the fully automatic Yumizen G800, Yumizen G1500, and Yumizen G1550, as well as semi-automatic Yumizen G200 and Yumizen G400 analyzers. Using antibody-coated latex particles and measured via the immuno-turbidimetric channels of these Yumizen G instruments, the new reagent kit delivers D-Dimer results consistency across the range.

The D-Dimer assay when used on very compact coagulation screening platforms such as the Yumizen G400DDi and Yumizen G200, which also have combined immuno-turbidimetric and chromogenic assay capabilities, is particularly ideal for small laboratories, hot labs and as a backup.

On these semi-automatic systems, the Yumizen G DDi 2 reagent kit offers an innovative combination of immuno-turbidimetric test capability and pre-calibrated ready-to-use reagent.

Offering a cost-efficient solution, the new assay minimizes preparation time due to its ready-to-use liquid format. Furthermore, as the reagent is pre-calibrated it removes the need for a costly and time-consuming calibration step. Its high stability and optimized volume packaging also avoids wastage.

HORIBA Medical’s new D-Dimer test kit is fully compliant with Gold Standard performances, having a Negative Predictive Value of 99% and an absence of hook effect up to 25 µg FEU/ml. It also offers slope check and post dilution function on both fully automatic and semi-automatic systems with a cut-off value at 0.5 µg FEU/ml.
