Date:9/25/2007

- Second Generation Reagent for Blood Coagulation Testing -

LEXINGTON, Mass., Sept. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Instrumentation Laboratory (IL) today announced that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted 510(k) clearance for HemosIL(R) RecombiPlasTin 2G. This new product is the second generation of HemosIL RecombiPlasTin, one of the most widely used Prothrombin Time (PT) reagents in the world.

HemosIL RecombiPlasTin 2G is performed for pre-surgical screening to evaluate the extrinsic coagulation pathway and to monitor oral anticoagulant therapy. It is based on recombinant tissue factor and a blend of synthetic phospholipids, which allow high sensitivity and lot-to-lot consistency. Additionally, the reagent is insensitive to the new antibiotic Cubicin (daptomycin for injection) and has an ISI value of approximately 1.0 on IL's ACL analyzers, traceable to WHO standards.

"RecombiPlasTin 2G is another example of IL's commitment to continuous product improvement and innovation," said Giovanni Russi, Director of Worldwide Marketing, Hemostasis Reagents at IL. "We are dedicated to delivering the best hemostasis and critical care diagnostics to healthcare providers and ultimately, contributing to the betterment of patient care."
