LumiraDx INR Test description
- Thrombin activation assay – the coagulation cascade is activated by the test reagents and INR is calculated from the measured PT-time
- Emitting fluorescence is detected at a threshold point and time to reach this is measured
- Haematocrit is also determined on the strip to ensure patients are within the 25-55% range
- Results compared to the Instrumentation Laboratory ACL Elite lab reference method
