Rivaroxaban Level Determination

Calibrators and controls now available

Rivaroxaban (Xarelto®) is the first available direct Factor Xa-Inhibitor. It inhibits selectively and reversibly both free and in prothrombinase complex bound Factor Xa. The advantages of this substance are found in the oral dispensing form and the well predictable pharmacokinetics and anticoagulation. According to the manufacturer dose regulation and routine monitoring is consequently unnecessary.

However, in case of compliance control respectively by overdoses a quantitative activity determination may be necessary. That requires a suitable routine and automated test application.

Now CE-marked calibration- and control plasmas are available that with COAMATIC® Heparin, a widely distributed and in praxis since many years reliable anti-Factor Xa-method makes the determination of Rivaroxaban possible.
