SARSTEDT AG & CO. KG
Sarstedt – S-Monovette Hirudin – Thrombocyte function
The S-Monovette Hirudin was developed together with the company Verum Diagnostica, today Roche Diagnostics (bought), for measuring thrombocyte activity using the Multiplate multiple platelet function analyser.
Unlike citrate or heparin, hirudin works via direct thrombin inhibition, and thus allows thrombocyte function diagnostics in its native state. It is used for monitoring platelet-inhibiting medications during treatment, as well as for detecting or ruling out thrombocyte function disorders.
