Widely used in medical, veterinary, industrial and research laboratories, coagulation analyzers are designed to simplify the process of measuring blood platelet levels. The test results help in diagnosing potentially heart attack-inducing blood clots. This device can measure a coagulation pathway speed, and thrombolin and thromboplastin levels in as little as a few minutes. Top models [...]
Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide. With a rapidly growing number of cancer patients in the country and around the world, cancer awareness is crucial. The American Cancer Society predicts that there will be as many as 1,658,370 new cancer cases and 589,430 cancer deaths in the United States in 2015. The most [...]
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men after skin cancer. The American Cancer Society reports that more than 2 million men in the US count themselves as prostate cancer survivors. The PSA test can give an early indication of prostate cancer. The test measures the level of PSA (prostate specific antigen) in the [...]
Quick and accurate coagulation test results are vital to control excessive bleeding or bruising and assure adequate clotting time. Physicians need to constantly monitor patients on oral anticoagulant therapy (OAT) such as warfarin using advanced coagulation testing methods. OAT effects are monitored by performing two laboratory assays - the prothrombin time (PT), i.e., the time [...]
