Reagents, Hematology, Coagulation, Thrombophilia Marker, Platelet Factor 4
Definition : Hematology reagents used for qualitative and/or quantitative determination in plasma of platelet factor 4, an intracellular platelet-specific protein that is usually released simultaneously with thromboglobulin. Platelet factor 4 inactivates heparin; increased levels in blood may indicate the occurrence of thrombosis (i.e., it is considered a thrombophilia marker).
