Fibrinogen

CLAUSS METHOD
Determination of fibrinogen time

 

 

PRINCIPLE

 

The Clauss method measures the rate of fibrinogen to fibrin conversion in the presence of excess of thrombin and has been shown to be rapid, sensitive and precise.

 

When diluted plasma is clotted with excess of thrombin, the fibrinogen level is inversely proportional to the clotting time.
