The most precise POC PT/INR system ever.
When clinicians and researchers want the most accurate means of determining prothrombin time, they turn to either the World Health Organization (WHO) mechanical tilt-tube technique or the Fibrometer. Both these methods use a mechanical approach to directly detect clot formation. The Coag-Sense® PT/INR Monitoring System represents a breakthrough in point-of-care prothrombin time monitoring technology by miniaturizing and simplifying a direct mechanical means of detecting clot formation.
Super-accurate direct mechanical detection.
By directly detecting the clot, the Coag-Sense® system avoids the challenges that plague other systems that use secondary means of clot detection like monitoring changes in impedance. For example, the concentration of red blood cells or other substances in blood sample can affect results in the measurement process of those products. The Coag-Sense® system simply lifts the fibrin clot from the reaction well which interrupts a simple light beam. The PT time is the actual time from when the blood sample is applied to when the clot is formed. This produces results similar to the gold standard WHO tilt-tube method.
