Very reliable easy to use analyzer. Functions consistently as intended.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area: Clinical Hemostasis testing

"This analyzer hasn't had 1 downtime in 3 years of operation. We use it for platelet function testing as a screen for bleeding disorder detection before specific major surgeries. The only drawback is the packaging of the cartridges. We run a limited amount of these tests and a smaller package option would allow us to have less waste of an expensive consumable. Reproducibility has been good for our analyzer. Maintenance is very minimal."

Are you providing fast and reliable detection platelet dysfunction? The INNOVANCE ® PFA-200 System* provides automated assessment for inherited, acquired, or drug-induced platelet dysfunction. It measures the process of primary hemostasis and aids in the rapid detection of platelet dysfunction. 

  • Through flow technology, the system provides a realistic hemodynamic environment for the measurement of primary hemostasis. 
  • Screens platelet function in patients with impaired primary hemostasis, such as von Willebrand disease Provides excellent sensitivity for congenital platelet dysfunction, such as Glanzmann thrombasthenia Verifies efficacy of desmopressin acetate (DDAVP) therapy in pre-surgical patients.
  • Assesses platelet dysfunction due to the effect of aspirin Evaluates platelet dysfunction in multiple clinical settings, such as presurgical screening, high-risk pregnancy and menorrhagia Detects platelet P2Y12-receptor blockades in patients undergoing therapy with P2Y12-receptor antagonists 

The INNOVANCE PFA-200 System provides simple, rapid, qualitative, and precise automated assessment of platelet function and supports clinically relevant decision-making processes effecting therapies. The system quickly measures platelet plug formation in a small whole blood sample (800 μL) and reports a ”closure time” in 5–8 minutes.
