INNOVANCE VWF Ac assay1

Real functional assay
Real functional assay

The INNOVANCE VWF Ac assay1 directly determines real activity of VWF. Due to the gain-of-function mutations, VWF binding to GPIb does not require ristocetin (VWF:GPIbM)2 and is therefore less susceptible to effects of certain polymorphism variants.

Excellent correlation to the gold standard method

INNOVANCE VWF Ac assay1 shows excellent correlation with the ristocetin cofactor-based BC von Willebrand assay. 

Recommended screening method
Recommended screening method

A functional assay is the preferred screening method for detecting quantitative as well as qualitative defects of von Willebrand factor.3
