Applications

The PC100 Platelet Counter is intended to count the number of platelets per nanolitre in venous whole blood (in EDTA). The count is relevant for patients with bleeding disorders, blood disorders, bone marrow disorders and those undergoing chemotherapy, as well as to measure the platelet count of processed platelet rich plasma. Monitoring the number of platelets per nanolitre is relevant for these medical purposes. The user is a medical professional or working under the responsibility of a trained medical professional. The device is intended for a medical clinic or a doctor’s office, it is not intended for use in a home environment. The cell concentration range evaluated by the device is [20-600] plt/nl.

The platelet counter is positioned in line with major key trends on the medical (devices) market: a shift from second line care to first line care closer to the patient / home. By having count results instantly it has the potential to enable innovations in personalised medicine, reduce health care costs and the ability to measure in (remote) locations without well established medical infrastructure.

EXAMPLES

The platelet counter can offer quick insight in the exact platelet/thrombocyte concentration per nanolitre of whole blood or platelet rich plasma.
