About the analyte

Fibrinogen is a large protein that plays a crucial role in the blood clotting process. Fibrinogen is converted to fibrin, forming a meshwork that traps blood cells and helps stop the bleeding. Fibrinogen can also be used as a diagnostic tool. Elevated equine fibrinogen levels are often indicative of inflammation and tissue damage (i). When measured serially with Equine Fibrinogen the kinetics of the inflammatory response can often be determined and this can be very helpful when monitoring response to treatment (ii).
