The InSight V-IA D-Dimer Rapid Quantitative Test is a fluorescence immunoassay
used with the InSight V-IA Veterinary Immunoassay Analyser for quantitative
determination of D-Dimer concentration in canine or feline Lithium Heparin plasma.
The test is used to aid diagnosis of systemic thrombosis.
1.This test employs a quantitative double antibody sandwich fluorescence
2.The fluorescent signal intensity reflects the amount of D-Dimer captured and is
processed in InSight V-IA Veterinary Immunoassay Analyser.
Opbevaring og stabilitet
1. Store the test kit at 4～30°C up to the expiration date.
2.Once the pouch has been opened, the test should be performed within an hour.
3.If removed from the refrigerator, allow 30 minutes for the test to attain room
temperature before testing
Prøvesamling og forberedelse
The test must be performed with Lithium Heparin plasma.
1.Following standard phlebotomy venipuncture procedure, collect whole blood
sample using a Lithium Heparin blood collection tube.
2.Separate plasma from blood within 2 hours after blood collection. If a sample
appears to be severely haemolysed, another sample should be obtained and tested.
3.The test should be performed immediately after the specimen collection. If the
test cannot be performed within 2 hours after blood collection, store the sample at
2°C～8°C for no longer than 48 hours. For long-term storage, samples should be
kept below -20°C.
Bring all materials to room temperature before use. Frozen samples must be
completely thawed and mixed well prior to testing. Samples should not be
frozen and thawed repeatedly. Only clear, non-haemolysed specimens can be
Refer to the InSight V-IA Veterinary Immunoassay Analyser User Manual for
complete instructions for use of the analyser.
1. Set the test cartridge on a clean, level horizontal surface.
2. Make sure that the Test Cartridge Lot No. matches with ID Chip No. Insert the
ID Chip into the analyser. Be aware not to touch the insertion tip of the ID chip.
Press ‘Read ID chip’ on test screen.
3. Pipette 10μl of prepared plasma sample into the buffer tube, gently mix well.
Vigorous agitation and foaming should be avoided.
4.Pipette 75μl of mixed sample dilution to the sample well of the test cartridge.
Avoid forming bubbles.
5.Please refer to Section V in the InSight V-IA Veterinary Immunoassay Analyser
User Manual for details.
a) Quick Test Mode: Set the timer for 5 minutes, start the timer immediately after
adding the sample mixture to the sample well. Once the timer has counted down,
insert the test cartridge immediately into the cartridge holder of the analyser and
click ‘Test’. The analyser will scan the test device automatically and show the test
b) Standard Test Mode: Insert the test device into the cartridge holder of the
analyser immediately after adding the sample to the sample well, click ‘Test’. The
analyser will start to countdown and read the test result automatically.
Results are displayed on the main screen and printed automatically.
Fortolkning af testresultater
The InSight V-IA Veterinary Immunoassay Analyser calculates D-Dimer test results
automatically and displays the concentration of D-Dimer on the screen. For further
information refer to the User Manual for the InSight V-IA Veterinary Immunoassay
Reference range of D-Dimer in canine or feline plasma.
1.Detection range: 50~10000 ng/mL
2.Reference range: 0~250 ng/mL
Each Laboratory should establish a reference range that is representative of the
population to be evaluated.
Each InSight V-IA D-Dimer Rapid Quantitative Test contains an internal control for
routine quality control requirements. This internal quality control is performed each
time a patient sample is tested. If an invalid result from the internal control occurs,
the analyser will display an error message, indicating that another test should be
