Haemonetics Launches TEG 6s PlateletMapping Assay Cartridge

Zacks Equity Research

Haemonetics Corporation HAE recently initiated commercial roll out of its four-channel TEG 6s PlateletMapping ADP & AA assay cartridge globally. Designed to be used with the TEG 6s Hemostasis Analyzer System, the cartridge has already attained the FDA approval in the United States for use in cardiology and cardiovascular surgery. The cartridge has also attained the CE mark and is commercially available in overseas markets with broader indications.

The global commercial availability of the cartridge is expected to bolster Haemonetics’ TEG portfolio.

 More About the TEG 6s PlateletMapping Cartridge

The PlateletMapping ADP & AA cartridge is used by clinicians to evaluate a patient’s bleeding and thrombotic risk, which can happen as a consequence of inhibition of platelet function. The assay provides four channels of dried-in-place reagents including HKH (Kaolin with Heparinase), ActF (Activator F), ADP (adenosine-5'-diphosphate) and AA (Arachidonic Acid), enabling clinicians to assess a patient's coagulation ability.

The PlateletMapping ADP & AA cartridge provides clinicians swift and accurate results that are required to study a patient's platelet function. With this information, doctors can easily determine the necessary diagnosis and treatment.

 

For investors’ notice, the TEG 6s PlateletMapping assay is the only cartridge-based hemostasis analyzer that aids a clinician to study both global hemostasis and platelet function at the site of care.
