Diagnosis should be suspected in patients with bleeding symptoms, and proper medical history, light transmission aggregometry, platelet function analyser, and flow cytometry are remained as useful tools.
Light transmission aggregometry has been considered the gold standard assay but requires skilled technicians and lengthy and demanding preparation, and the results are subject to variability.
Multiple electrode platelet aggregometry (MEA): It is a whole-blood impedance aggregometry method that allows the assessment of thrombocyte function.
Except for Light Transmission Aggregometry (LTA), no tests are endorsed by platelet function testing experts.
21) Even though various methods like optical aggregometry, platelet function analysis using PFA-100 system, platelet reactivity tests, platelet aggregate ratio measurements, flow cytometry and thromboxane B2 generation tests (22) are there to analyse the platelet activation, but they are of limited use due to complex pre-analytical factors, reduced specificity and poor reproducibility.
3 - Medical supplies and reagents for impedance aggregometry MultiPlateA detailed description of the contract contain Annex 2b, 4 and 6 to the ToR.
Supplemental VWF multimer analysis identified the absence of high molecular weight VWF multimers, and ristocetin-induced platelet aggregometry demonstrated abnormally increased response to low-dose ristocetin, altogether supporting diagnosis of either type 2B VWD or PT-VWD.
In the platelet aggregometry test, normal aggregation curves were obtained with collagen and ristocetin, near normal aggregation curves were obtained with adenozine diphosphate (ADP) and very low amplitude aggregation curves were obtained with epinephrine.
The current functional tests include serotonin release assay, heparin-induced platelet aggregation test using platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and the emerging whole-blood impedence platelet aggregometry (7).
Washed platelets and PPP were incubated and stabilized at 37 [degrees]C in an aggregometry sample tube with stirring at 800 x g for 1 min before testing.
