Blood Collection - S-Monovette ThromboExact for Pseudothrombocytopenia
The term pseudothrombocytopenia defines an erroneously low thrombocyte count. Early identification of this phenomenon is necessary to prevent the diagnostic and therapeutic consequences of a misdiagnosis.
Generally, pseudothrombocytopenia is caused by thrombocyte aggregation which makes precise counting of the thrombocytes impossible. Aggregation most frequently occurs when EDTA is used as an anticoagulant. However, patient-related aggregation can also occur with other additives used for anticoagulation, such as Heparin or Citrate.
The S-Monovette ThromboExact contains a preparation enabling a correct thrombocyte count up to 12 hours after blood collection.
The S-Monovette ThromboExact is exclusively validated for thrombocyte count and is not suited for other haematological analyses.
