Abstract Monoclonal antibodies (MAb) were raised against human D dimer. The hybridomas were screened with a solid phase enzyme immunoassay against D dimer and fibrinogen degradation products. Among the panel of MAb identified, two distinct patterns emerged; the majority belonging to a panspecific class reacting against epitopes present on both D dimer and fibrinogen degradation product Dcate and a monospecific class reacting with determinants apparently present only on D dimer. A number of MAb were further characterised for their ability to specifically capture antigen in a solid phase enzyme immunoassay and assays were developed which have a sensitivity of 10 ng/ml for D dimer or crosslinked fibrin derivatives and may be suitable for detection of crosslinked derivatives in serum and plasma samples in a clinical situation.
