Fibrometer Fibro test and Hepascore were analysed in a study that recruited chronic hepatitis Band C cases.
Moreover, platelets have been an integral component of some of the more sophisticated tests, such as Forn's Index14, and Fibrometer test15.
The Army hospital supply officer wanted to know where the Fibrometer had come from (he had no paperwork for request, approval, budgeting, and so on).
20) Plasma fibrinogen concentrations were measured with a clot-based end point using a BBL fibrometer (Becton-Dickinson, Baltimore, Maryland).
The instrument used for analysis was the fibrometer (Becton-Dickinson, New Jersey), which is an electro-mechanical instrument that detects the presence of a fibrin clot via a stationary electrode and a moving electrode.
Clinical specimens that had previously been tested on the Fibrometer (Becton Dickinson) were tested concurrently with all five reagents on the STA-R analyzer.
The first coagulation instrument, the Fibrometer (Becton Dickinson), used a moving electrode to detect the clot.
Duplicate plasma samples were diluted 1:10 (by vol) with an imidazole buffer (Organon Teknika) and measured at 20- and 40-s intervals at 37[degrees]C in a fibrometer (Model BBL, Becton Dickinson).
The Fibrometer replaced the tilt-tube method for coagulation.
The Fibrometer has not only been around, seemingly, for ages, but many labs--including mine--still have one.
Prothrombin time (PT), activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT), and fibrinogen values from the BBL Fibro-System fibrometer, which utilizes electrical clot detection, were unaffected by HBOC concentrations [less than or equal to] 50 g/L.
