trial put Plateletworks® on the short list of platelet function
assays that actually work to catch non-responders to the anti-platelet
drug Plavix® (clopidogrel) at higher risk for cardiovascular
events. Plateletworks can be used anytime there are general
concerns about the effect of drug therapies on platelet function.
II (sold in Canada as a Mindray BC-3200) is a lower-cost impedance
cell counter for Plateletworks platelet function and general
hematology testing at the point of care. When used with Plateletworks
reagents, the Ichor II system provides a hematology profile
with a standard CBC, as well as platelet count and platelet
aggregation/inhibition in under five minutes.
Activated Clotting Time test system takes a bold step forward
in the management of heparin anticoagulation. Actalyke analyzers
are for use at the point of care during cardiopulmonary bypass,
cardiac catheterization, angioplasty, hemodialysis and other
procedures where heparin monitoring with accurate ACT results
Activated Clotting Time (ACT) testing is essential for monitoring
heparin therapy during cardiac procedures and dialysis. Actalyke
instruments and reagent tubes provide the sensitivity, reliability
and rapidity needed to make timely treatment decisions at the
point of care.
