Hemostasis Controls & Reference Plasmas

Discovery Diagnostics is the Canadian distributor for the following Helena Laboratories Hemostasis Controls & Reference Plasmas;
Coagulation Controls for PT, aPTT and Fibrinogen Assays
Cat. No. Item
5186 Norm-Trol 1, 10 x 1 mL
5187 Ab-Trol 2, 10 x 1 mL
5183 Ab-Trol 3, 10 x 1 mL
Norm-Trol 1, Ab-Trol 2 and Ab-Trol 3 are normal, moderately elevated, and very elevated controls respectively, for PT and aPTT assays. Norm-Trol 1 is also assayed for fibrinogen and is prepared from normal human plasma. Ab-Trol 2 and Ab-Trol 3 are prepared from adsorbed human plasma. Reconstituted controls are stable 8 hours at 2 to 6°C. When ordering, ask about our free Quality Assurance Review (QAR) peer review service.

Hep-Trol Control for aPTT and Heparin Assays
Cat. No. Item
5189 Hep-Trol, 10 x 1 mL

Hep-Trol is prepared from pooled human plasma and processed with sodium heparin to simulate plasma from patients on heparin therapy. It can be used as a control plasma for aPTT assays and for chromogenic heparin assays. Reconstituted control is stable for 8 hours at 2 to 6°C.


S.A.C.-1 and S.A.C.-2 Assayed Controls
Cat. No Item
5301 S.A.C.-1, 10 x 1 mL
5302 S.A.C.-2, 10 x 1 mL
S.A.C.-1 is a normal control plasma assayed for a broad spectrum of hemostasis tests including PT, aPTT, fibrinogen, plasminogen, AT III, antiplasmin, Proteins C and S, Ristocetin Cofactor, vWF:Ag, plus Factors II, V, VII, VIII, IX, X, XI and XII. S.A.C.-2 is an abnormal control (values < 60% of normal) assayed for the same parameters as S.A.C.-1.



Coagulation S.A.R.P. Specialty Assayed Reference Plasma
Cat. No. Item
5185 S.A.R.P., 10 x 1 mL

Coagulation S.A.R.P. was the first reference plasma fully assayed for virtually all coagulation studies. S.A.R.P. is prepared from a frozen pool of citrated plasma from healthy donors. S.A.R.P. has normal PT and aPTT clotting times and can be used as reference material for the following parameters:

Fibrinogen** Factor VIII*• Ristocetin Cofactor Protein C•
Factor II* Factor IX* vWF:Ag Protein S - Total, Free
Factor V* Factor X* Factor XII* Antithrombin III (immunologic)•
Factor VII* Factor XI Antiplasmin• Plasminogen (immunologic)•

*WHO traceable
**Calibrated against CAP reference material
•Also assayed for kinetic (chromogenic) assays
