Dog, Cat, Horse
Field of application:
ACT-VETube (Activated Clotting Time) is a screening test for evaluation of secondary hemostasis disorders of the dog, cat and horse.
Hemostasis is a complex physiological reaction to all kinds of bleedings. Hemostatic disorders base on defects of the primary (cellular hemostasis via thrombocytes) and secondary (plasmatic clotting factors) hemostasis.
The Activated Clotting Time (ACT) is, like the activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (aPTT), an important coagulation marker for screening of the individual status of hemostasis, especially of the intrinsic and common path of the coagulation cascade.
