RAMP D-DIMER TEST

   The biomarker for venous thromboembolism

    D-dimer is a small biomarker of coagulation activation and is present in  the blood as a blood clot is degraded.
    Response Biomedical offers a whole blood quantitative immunoassay D-dimer test, with our proprietary RAMP technology which assess the levels of D-dimer in patients around the world in ~15 minutes.

    THE CHALENG

    VENOUS THROMBOEMBOLISMS ARE DIFFICULT TO DIAGNOSE

  • Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and Pulmonary Embolism (PE) are diagnostically challenging conditions that carry a high cost if not recognized and treated promptly.
  • Accurate diagnosis of DVT and PE remain a problem and with improper testing, risky, expensive, imaging and treatments may be done unnecessarily.
  • DVT and PE present like many other medical problems, but emergency medicine doctors have no time to waste, and the majority of PE-related deaths occur within the first hour
  •    THE SOLUTION

    • RAMP D-DIMER TEST
    • Research shows that the fibrin degradation product D-dimer, in general, is a valuable diagnostic marker used as an aid to the rule-out of Venous Thromboembolism (VTE), including thromboembolic events such as Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and Pulmonary Embolism (PE).
    • RAMP D-dimer, unlike traditional D-dimer assays, uses EDTA whole blood directly and samples do not require centrifugation and speed up processing time.
    • RAMP D-dimer is relatively inexpensive and provides lab quality quantitative results in ~15 minutes.
