ClotPro is a 6 channel viscoelastometry analyzer, designed for the rapid analysis of whole blood coagulation.
It offers a unique combination of ease of use, flexibility, and throughput (6 channels for parallel testing).
The system provides excellent correlation to conventional viscoelastometry analyzers.

Active Tip™ Technology
The Active Tip technology is designed to eliminate reagent handling on the ClotPro analyzer.
The reagents are present in a little sponge in the pipetting tip in dry form. During pipetting of the blood sample the reagents are transferred into the blood – simply and safely.
Each active tip comes individually sealed with significant room temperature stability, preventing any reagent wastage.
ClotPro offers 9 tests, the established screening assays (EX-test, FIB-test, AP-test, IN-test, HI-test) and new assays for drug monitoring (RVV-test, ECA-test, TPA-test, NA-test)

Cups and Pins
To begin ClotPro analysis the sample is placed into a cylindrical cup with a cylindrical pin. During coagulation the blood adheres onto the surfaces of the cup and pin and the mechanical strength of the blood clot is continuously determined.
ClotPro uses the dimensions that have been used in thrombelastography for decades for excellent correlation to existing viscoelastometry systems.
ClotPro cups and pins come in packages of 20. Each box contains six packages.
Two levels of plasma based lyophilized controls are available for ClotPro analysis.
The controls come in packages of 5 control vials, 1.36 ml (i.e. 3 tests per vial):
- QC 1: Level 1 control plasma approximating the normal range in whole blood
- QC 2: Level 2 control plasma representing abnormal results in whole blood
QC 1 and QC 2 must be reconstituted with 1.36 ml QCdil solution (QCdil).
QCdil is provided using pre-filled tubes containing 5 ml aqua dest with a low concentration of CaCl2.
ClotPro software was designed for intuitive and highly efficient performance and documentation of viscoelastometry.
Software features include:
- Concurrent real time display of 6 measurements
- User management - restricting access to configuration options
- Automatic documentation of user interactions in the audit trail
- Automatic storage of test results as graphics and data files
- Screen sharing for live-view of active tests in remote locations
- Forwarding of test results by e-mail
- LIS/HIS connectivity
