Integrated Platelet Aggregation Testing

Integrated Platelet Aggregation TestingRethinking platelet aggregation: integrated, standardized, available.

Labs of all sizes need an alternative to traditional platelet aggregation testing that is less complex, easier to integrate into the daily workflow, and less dependent on the specially-trained lab technician, while also producing more-consistent results.

Integrated onto routine coagulation analyzers—the Sysmex® CS-2500 and CS-5100 Systems1 and the Atellica® COAG 360 System2—platelet aggregation becomes more manageable, reliable, and accessible with easy-to-use, standardized testing.

Features & Benefits

Patient care
  • The systems enable access to platelet aggregation testing to provide additional information for therapeutic decisions and complete the diagnostic picture.
  • The systems can process low sample volumes and produce standardized results for geriatric and pediatric samples that enable immediate diagnosis and improved patient outcomes.

Process efficiency
  • After initial sample preparation (preparing PRP and PPP plasma) and loading, systems can perform platelet aggregation testing automatically for five agonists without additional pipetting steps or other dedicated hands-on time.
  • Test scheduling is simplified, because platelet aggregation testing can be performed by any lab technician at any time on a routine coagulation analyzer.

  • The Atellica® COAG 360 System2 intelligently identifies hemolytic samples that are not eligible for platelet aggregation testing, preventing incorrect result reporting and saving reagents, patient samples, time, and cost.
  • Integrated platelet aggregation testing eliminates a dedicated instrument for platelet aggregation testing and reduces the number of consumables to manage and store.
