Platelet Function Testing
Blood platelets play a pivotal role in physiological haemostasis, but also in the development of arterial thrombosis (myocardial infarction and stroke). Platelet function testing is utilised in the analysis of inherited and acquired platelet function disorders, in the analysis of platelet function in anaesthesia and intensive care, and for monitoring of platelet antagonists.
The Multiplate analyzer is an easy-to use instrument to determine platelet function in small quantities of whole blood in a highly standardised manner. The five channel analyser with a broad menu of CE marked tests can be used to tailor anti-platelet therapy as well as improve the management of bleeding complications in surgical procedures.
