Thrombin Time Assay (C0677634)

Definition (MSHCZE) Zkr. TT – test k vyšetření koagulace krve. Vyšetřuje se jím závěrečná fáze koagulační kaskády, konverze fibrinogenu na fibrin po přidání exogenního trombinu. Trvá cca do 20 sekund. Prodloužen je při poruchách fibrinu, hypofibrinogenemii či afibrinogenemii či při přítomnosti FDP. (cit. Velký lékařský slovník online, 2013 http://lekarske.slovniky.cz/ )
Definition (NCI) A measurement of the time it takes a plasma sample to clot after adding the active enzyme thrombin.
Definition (NCI_CDISC) A measurement of the time it takes a plasma sample to clot after adding the active enzyme thrombin. (NCI)
Definition (MSH) Clotting time of PLASMA mixed with a THROMBIN solution. It is a measure of the conversion of FIBRINOGEN to FIBRIN, which is prolonged by AFIBRINOGENEMIA, abnormal fibrinogen, or the presence of inhibitory substances, e.g., fibrin-fibrinogen degradation products, or HEPARIN. BATROXOBIN, a thrombin-like enzyme unaffected by the presence of heparin, may be used in place of thrombin.
