The PFA-100® System measures the complex process of primary hemostasis and aids in the rapid detection of platelet dysfunction. It is the first commercially available in vitro testing system to incorporate high-shear flow in which the process of platelet adhesion and aggregation following a vascular injury is simulated in-vitro.
The PFA-100 System provides automated assessment for inherited, acquired, or drug-induced platelet dysfunction.
