The increasing use of the new oral direct Factor Xa (FXa) inhibitor rivaroxaban creates the need of its measurement in the clinical routine. Technoview Rivaroxaban Calibrators and the Technochrom anti-Xa assay are available, but to be suitable for the routine clinical laboratory a validated system of calibrators, assay and analyzer protocols is necessary.
The aim of this study was to establish application protocols for Technochrom anti-Xa and Technoview Rivaroxaban on the main coagulation analyzers and evaluate their performance.
TECHNOCHROM anti-Xa is a one stage chromogenic assay for the determination of Xa inhibitor activity in human citrated plasma. The assay is based on the inhibition of activated factor X (FXa) by indirect or direct Xa inhibitors like Rivaroxaban as measured by a chromogenic FXa substrate.
Calibrators and Controls: TECHNOVIEW Rivaroxaban calibrators were used for assay calibration. The assay was performed on coagulation analyzers: Ceveron alpha, ACL-TOP, STAR, Thrombolyzer XRC and BCS with adapted settings for each analyzer and for 2 measurement ranges. Controls in 3 ranges were measured to calculate recovery and precision.
Calibration curves with R2=1.0±0.1 were obtained for rivaroxaban in the range of 0-150ng/mL, as well as for the range of 0-500ng/mL on all analyzers. The recovery of control was ± 10% of target value on all analyzers and precision was very good with intra-assay variations between 0.9%-4.2% and inter-assay variations between 1.8-4.9%. The detection limit for rivaroxaban was 10ng/mL.
Our data demonstrate that TECHNOCHROM anti-Xa and TECHNOVIEW Rivaroxaban can be used with adapted settings on different analyzers with very good results.
