Continuous chromogenic tissue factor assay: comparison to clot-based assays and sensitivity established using pure tissue factor.

Author information

Department of Pathology, University of Colorado, School of Medicine, Denver 80262.


The continuous chromogenic tissue factor assay has been compared to one-stage and two-stage coagulation assays, and its sensitivity has been established using purified human placental tissue factor. Log-log plots of the clot-times versus A405/min2 are linear over the mutually useful ranges of tissue factor concentration. Using human placental tissue factor reconstituted into phosphatidylserine-phosphatidylcholine (30:70) vesicles, the chromogenic assay quantitatively detected tissue factor in dilutions containing from 3 femtomoles to less than 10 attomoles of protein.
