Anti-Cardiolipin (aCL) Assays are intended for the semi-quantitative determination of aCL antibodies in human serum or plasma. Anti-cardiolipin antibodies are frequently found in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Elevated levels of aCL antibodies have been significantly associated with the presence of both venous and arterial thrombosis, thrombocytopenia, and recurrent pregnancy loss.
All Bio-Rad Anti-Cardiolipin (aCL) Assays feature common protocols and common reagents. Reagents and reagent bottle caps are color-coded for ease of use. Test operation is further streamlined with breakaway wells, easy automation, a linear calibration curve and flexible single-point and multi-point calibration options. Quality controls are built in, with undiluted test controls and calibrators.
