Description Technical data

Platelet aggregation profiler PAP-8E

The PAP-8E from Bio/Data Corporation is the world’s most advanced aggregometer for laboratory applications.
Exceptional ease of use and standardized test procedures allow for rapid and routine testing of platelet function. The PAP-8E is designed to support diagnoses of hemostasis disorders including von Willebrand Disease (vWD), Glanzmann’s disease, HIT, Bernard Soulier Syndrome, and Sticky Platelet Syndrome as well as to precisely monitor the use of anti-platelet drugs during clinical trials or patient therapy. (Aspirin, ReoPro®, Aggrenox®, Asasantin®, Pletal®, Plavix®, Persantine®, Integrelin®, Effient®, Ticlid).

The Platelet Aggregation Profiler, PAP-8E, is intended
for usein clinical, research, university, biotechnology
and pharmaceutical laboratories. The system measures
the rate and extent of aggregation, agglutination, activation
and inhibition reactions. Comprehensive results include area under the curve and area under the slope.
