Alpha 2 Antiplasmin, Human Plasma (Coagulation Factor)

Efficiently inhibits the plasminogen-activator-induced lysis of fibrin clots. Found in plasma at about 70 ug per ml. Alpha-antiplasmin-deficiency is a rare coagulation disorder which allows unrestrained fibrinolytic activity. Individuals with this condition may receive therapeutic A2AP prior to surgery to prevent postoperative hemorrhaging.

Purity: >=95% by SDS-PAGE

Activity: >= 5.0 U/mg

Prepared from plasma shown to be non reactive for HBsAg, anti-HCV, anti-HBc, and negative for anti-HIV 1 & 2 by FDA approved tests.
