Imprecision and insensitivity of the VWF:RCo assay led to the development of new assays. Some of the issues related to VWF activity testing have recently been reviewed[7-11].

The guiding principles in developing a practical and accurate nomenclature included simplicity, consistency and accuracy. The result of this effort reached consensus and was formally approved by the VWF Subcommittee at the Milwaukee SSC Meeting on June 23, 2014. Read more here.
