A message from Tipton Golias on Plateletworks


Plateletworks effectively determines functional platelet count and true platelet aggregation or inhibition using traditional ADP, Collagen or Arachidonic Acid agonists. All that’s needed is an impedance cell counter and Plateletworks reagent tubes. Just add whole blood to a baseline and agonist tube(s), perform cell counts on each tube, and calculate the final results. It’s that simple with reportable results in less than 10 minutes.

Contact us for more information, an in-lab demonstration, or a free sample.


Plateletworks by the Numbers


    Easy as 1, 2, 3

    Simply add 1 mL fresh whole blood to agonist and baseline tubes.

    Perform cell count on each tube using any impedance cell counter.

    Functional platelet count plus %aggregation/inhibition are available in just minutes.



    Plateletworks makes financial sense. Cost per test to perform both ADP and Collagen testing is $27.60 with a total reimbursement of $49.82 for CPT Code 85576 on the 2019 Clinical Laboratory Fee Schedule. That leaves a favorable reimbursement margin of $22.22.


    Transfusion Reductions

    Using Plateletworks as an integrated transfusion algorithm reduced RBC transfusions by 13%, platelet transfusions by 24%, and reduced episodes of major bleeding in 12 major hospitals across Canada.
