Whole picture of the coagulation process
In one whole blood sample ROTEM® measures:
- Clotting time
- Clot formation speed
- Clot firmness and lysis
It provides the whole picture of the coagulation process with helpful additional information to standard laboratory assays, with 2 levels of controls, internal self check and optional LIS/HIS connectivity.
The system allows total quality management!
Differential diagnosis approach
In the complex field of haemostasis, it is a particular challenge to diagnose coagulation disorders. The differential diagnosis approach provided by ROTEM® helps to identify numerous coagulopathic situations, such as hyperfibrinolysis, factor and platelet deficiency, etc.
The potential anticoagulant effects of therapeutic agents can be identified, and the influence of specific anticoagulants, such as heparin, can be assessed and monitored through specific analysis. Targeted individualised therapy with coagulation factors, based on ROTEM® diagnosis, helps to save the increasingly shortening, blood product supply.
