Plateletworks - Platelet Function Kits

Helena Plateletworks

In about two minutes, monitor Platelet Count and real Platelet Aggregation or Inhibition at the point of care using traditional ADP, collagen or Arachidonic acid agonists. All that's needed is an impedance cell counter and Plateletworks.

- Platelet Aggregation

- Platelet Inhibition

- Platelet Count


By directly monitoring the platelet's ability to form an aggregate, it's a direct measurement of the platelet's ability to contribute to a thrombus. Plateletworks can be used to monitor all mechanisms which affect platelet aggregation:

- Physiological conditions such as fibrinolytic damage to glycoprotein la

- Aspirin and ADP inhibitors (clopidogrel, ticlopene)

- Glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors (abciximab, eptifibatide, tirofiban)

- Plus Arachidonic Acid agonist is the only aspirin screening assay suitable for patients on both clopidogrel and aspirin

Mindray BC-3600 Impedance Cell Counter

The Mindray BC-3600 for Plateletworks platelet function and general hematology testing at the point of care provides a hematology profile with a standard CBC, as well as platelet count and platelet aggregation/inhibition in under five minutes. Testing is simple. Just add whole blood to an EDTA baseline reagent tube and your choice of agonist tubes and run a standard cell count. It’s that simple. Plateletworks can be used to screen for anything affecting platelet function.

- Calculates % inhibition and % aggregation for Plateletworks

- CBC, differential and functional platelet count

- 60 samples per hour

- Touch screen interface

- Closed tube sampling

For ease of use, Mindray BC-3600 offers cap piercing capability, reagent inventory management and supports use of a keyboard, barcode scanner and printer.
