The ROTEM® platelet

Module for platelet aggregation

Used in conjunction with the ROTEM® delta, the system is operated at the patients’ Point of Care, allowing comprehensive, peri-operative bleeding management.

ROTEM® platelet: Proven technologies in one system

The ROTEM® platelet measures platelet aggregation in whole blood samples using impedance aggregometry. The new device is run in conjunction with the ROTEM® delta, and is compatible with all existing ROTEM® delta models with serial numbers > 2000.


Easy and safe handling

The ROTEM® platelet characteristics are:

  • Dedicated single use cuvettes with electrodes
  • 2 channels can be used simultaneously
  • Measurement time is 6 min, while allowing for emergency samples

Measurements can be performed on the ROTEM® platelet device while running measurements on the ROTEM® delta system simultaneously.

Fast therapeutic decisions

  • First results in 6 minutes
  • 3 different parameters are available
    • AUC (area under the curve in Ohm*min)
    • A6 (amplitude at 6 min in Ohm)
    • MS (maximum slope of the aggregation graph in Ohm/min)

Safe near-patient diagnosis

With the ROTEM® platelet differential diagnosis, the type of a platelet aggregation disorder can be determined. Rapid test results can help clinicians identify between surgical bleeding and platelet dysfunction, and make the monitoring of platelet therapy possible.
