Precision BioLogic is pleased to expand our family of factor deficient plasmas with the launch of our new CRYOcheckTM?Factor VIII Deficient Plasma with VWF?in Canada, the European Union, Australia, and New Zealand. The launch follows market authorization by Health Canada and respective in-country regulatory authorities.
In his latest monthly e-newsletter, George Fritsma reported the availability of 13 new education modules on The Fritsma Factor. Since his announcement, the number of modules has grown to 14! Each module lasts been 20 and 30 minutes and contains a wealth of information. View the list of modules.?
"In 2020 our Educational Module series was discontinued as Adobe withdrew their "vintage" Flash function. Thirteen updated modules have taken their place and are now available, with more to come. Our free modules augment entry-level hemostasis education and support advanced development of hemostasis expertise among medical laboratory scientists, clinical pathologists, internal medicine specialists, pharmacists, and many more health care professionals," explained George.
ISTH 2021 has come to a close. Precision BioLogic and Affinity Biologicals presented several e-posters at this year's virtual event. The posters are now available on our websites:
PB0100: Validation of a New Kit for the Quantitative Determination of Chromogenic Factor IX Activity
PB0101: Comparison of a Chromogenic vs. APTT-based Factor VIII Activity Assay in the Recovery of a Pegylated Factor VIII Replacement Therapy in Plasma Samples
PB0340: The Impact of Inactive FVIII Antigen in Factor VIII Deficient Plasma on the Measurement of FVIII Inhibitors
PB0471: Comparative Recovery of FVIII Antigen with Various FVIII Therapeutic Concentrates Using an Improved 2nd Generation ELISA Kit
Abstracts are now available online at?abstracts.isth.org.?
Today is World Hemophilia Day—an international day to raise awareness and understanding of hemophilia and other bleeding disorders. It's held each year on April 17, birthdate of Frank Schnabel, founder of the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH).
This year's theme is "Adapting to Change: Sustaining Care in a New World." While the past year brought a lot of changes, the resilience of the global bleeding disorders community did not waver. Precision BioLogic is proud to support and celebrate this community on World Hemophilia Day 2021 and reaffirm our commitment to developing innovative diagnostic solutions.
With our colleagues from Affinity Biologicals, we encourage everyone to learn more about hemophilia and other bleeding disorders by visiting wfh.org.?
April 11-17 is National Medical Laboratory Week in Canada and April 18-24 is Medical Laboratory Professionals Week in the U.S. Precision BioLogic would?like to express our appreciation for medical laboratory professionals everywhere and their many contributions to health care. Thank you for your dedication and hard work, particularly during the past year.
EAHAD 2021 is underway and runs until February 5. Precision BioLogic and Affinity Biologicals are both presenting e-posters at the virtual event. Posters are also available for viewing and download from our websites:
Precision BioLogic Inc., a leading developer of hemostasis diagnostic products, is pleased to announce the U.S. launch of its new CRYOcheck? Hex LA? kit. Expansion to the U.S. follows successful launches in Canada, the European Union, Australia, and New Zealand.
CRYOcheck Hex LA is intended for use in clinical labs to aid in the detection of lupus anticoagulant (LA) in human plasma. Hex LA is an integrated (screen and confirm) assay and, as its name suggests, applies hexagonal phase phospholipids. It is the first commercially available hexagonal phase LA test available in a frozen format, allowing for fast and easy preparation. Designed to work on many common automated coagulation analyzers, Hex LA offers valuable time savings to today’s busy labs.
As we prepare to chill out, we extend wishes for a warm, relaxing holiday.
Please note, we are closed from December 23 to January 3. Our regular shipping schedule resumes when we reopen on January 4, 2021.
THSNA 2020 is underway. We're presenting three posters at this year's virtual conference:
Precision BioLogic, a leading developer of hemostasis diagnostic products, is pleased to announce FDA 510(k) clearance and the launch of its new CRYOcheck Chromogenic Factor VIII assay in the U.S. This clearance follows authorizations received from regulatory authorities in Canada, the European Union, Australia, and New Zealand where the assay launched earlier this year.
