USAGE

Applications

ClotPro® provides a comprehensive overview of the blood coagulation system.

ClotPro enables the detection and assessment of factor deficiencies, low fibrinogen, platelet contribution (to whole blood coagulation), heparin and DOAC effects, fibrinolysis and antifibrinolytic drugs.

The benefits of viscoelastic coagulation monitoring have been described in many fields of surgery and intensive care: Cardiac and vascular surgery, organ transplantation, trauma, obstetrics, orthopaedic surgery and intensive care.

Elastic Motion Thrombelastography

ClotPro uses Elastic Motion Thrombelastography, an improved new generation viscoelastometry technique.

Similar to conventional thromboelastometry systems the surfaces of the ClotPro Cup and Pin experience a relative movement, driven by an elastic element. In the ClotPro analyzer the Cup is rotated and the Pin is stationary to facilitate a compact and easy-to-use instrument design.

The rotation of the Cup is detected by a high sensitivity electronic sensor.


Conventional thromboelastometry:

ClotPro® principle:


Active tip technology

The active-tip technology eliminates reagent handling on the ClotPro analyzer.
The reagents for each assay are present in dry form in a sponge in the pipette tip. During pipetting of the patient sample (340 ul) the reagent is automatically added to the blood – simple and safe.

The active-tip technology drives standardization, as test processing is identical across the menu of ClotPro assays.
