Vcheck measures for the highly sensitive marker indicating thromboembolism with its D-dimer test. D-dimer is produced from degradation of crosslinked fibrin. Plasmin is the enzyme responsible for thrombolysis and acts on both fibrinogen and fibrin. Plasmin cleaves crosslinked fibrin resulting in a cleavage product consisting of 2 linked D domains or D-dimer.
