Proven Technology That’s Fast, Accurate and Easy-to-Use
By measuring the rate and extent of changes in light transmittance caused by platelets aggregating in whole blood samples, the VerifyNow System determines the level of platelet function in response ( PRU) to agonists that are specific to the pathways of various antiplatelet medications. The VerifyNow® System is designed to mimic light transmittance aggregometry (LTA), delivering results that correlate strongly to LTA and VASP in a more convenient and rapid form.
The system measures the rate and extent of changes in light transmittance caused by platelets aggregating in whole blood samples. Samples with inhibited platelets produce low levels of light transmittance while samples containing normally functioning platelets deliver a higher level of transmittance.
The VerifyNow Process
With the VerifyNow System, platelet function testing can be completed in five minutes or less using whole blood, closed tube samples with no pipetting or sample preparation required.
