von Willebrand disease (vWD) is a genetic bleeding disorder caused by missing or defective von Willebrand factor (vWF).
Since von Willebrand disease (vWD) is a complex disease, its diagnosis requires a large panel of tests for an accurate diagnosis and classification of vWD. Multimer analysis is an integral part of the diagnostic process and an essential information for the clinicians for an optimal patient management.
HYDRAGEL von WILLEBRAND MULTIMERS kit is designed for the detection of abnormalities in the vWF multimers distribution related to a haemorrhagic diathesis. The test allows to assess the overall size distribution of von Willebrand factor multimers in human plasma using agarose gel electrophoresis and immunofixation, with the semi-automated HYDRASYS 2 instrument.
