A new in vitro system for the evaluation of platelet function, PFA-100 (currently under evaluation) is characterized. The system monitors platelet aggrega tion on a collagen-epinephrine-coated membrane as whole blood sample is aspirated under controlled flow conditions through a microscopic aperture cut into the membrane. The time required for the platelet plug to oc clude the aperture (closure time) is indicative of the plate let function in the sample. Incubation of normal blood samples with… CONTINUE READING
