Canine PAI-1 ELISA Kit
The Canine PAI-1 Activity Assay is intended for the quantitative determination of active plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 (PAI-1) in dog plasma. PAI-1 is a central regulator of the blood fibrinolytic system. Clinical studies have indicated that increased PAI-1 levels increase the risk for thrombosis, whereas decreased levels may cause recurrent bleeding. Functionally active PAI-1 present in plasma reacts with urokinase coated and dried on a microtiter plate. Latent or complexed PAI-1 will not bind to the plate and will not be detected.
