Size: 1 Kit

Pafakit TAFI is a plasma based chromogenic assay for the determination of Thrombin Activatable Fibrinolysis Inhibitor (TAFI) activity. For research use only.

  • Functional assay based on direct substrate cleavage
  • 100% specific for TAFI
  • Fast, easy and reliable
  • Controls and Calibrators available

Principle of Assay

Pefakit TAFI is a fast assay for the quantification of activated TAFI. A synthetic substrate is selectively cleaved by activated TAFI producing a thiol derivative. This thiol derivative reacts with the colourless Ellman's reagent splitting off the yellow coloured 5-mercapto-2-nitro-benzoic acid moiety. The colour change measured at a wavelength of 405 nm is directly proportional to the concentration of TAFI activated by thrombin / thrombomodulin.
