Point of Care for Whole Blood Coagulation
Swipe. Drop. Done. That sums up the steps needed to complete PT, aPTT or ACT testing at the point of care with the Cascade POC system. Cascade POC already offers the broadest range of hemostasis assays at the most affordable price. For a limited time, Helena is providing the Cascade POC analyzers for use FREE of CHARGE to qualified Cascade POC reagent users. This offer is available for a limited time in the United States, including Puerto Rico and Hawaii.

The Cascade POC is a small, portable analyzer, ideal for monitoring warfarin therapy, pre-surgical screening for bleeding tendencies or monitoring unfractionated heparin therapy. It uses a unique dry chemistry reagent system built into encoded test cards the size of a driver’s license. The Cascade POC analyzer reads test type, lot number, ISI of PT reagents and calibration data directly from the test cards as well as providing QC lockout, biologic and electronic QC, operator and patient ID entry. An internal battery provides bedside portability.For warfarin monitoring, Cascade POC PT assays are available in both whole blood and citrated sample formulations. Both utilize a low ISI thromboplastin with an assigned value around 1.0. The aPTT utilizes citrated whole blood or plasma. The Cascade POC c-ACT uses whole blood and provides a celite-based equivalent value.
