Light transmission aggregometry using pre-coated microtiter plates and a Victor X5 plate reader

Abstract

BACKGROUND Light transmission aggregometry (LTA) can be performed with microtiter plates (96-well LTA). When conducting LTA, an agonist is added to platelet-rich plasma and the sample is shaken for minutes after which absorbance readings are done. Platelet aggregation is detected as decrease in absorbance. However, the classical method is cumbersome and… (More)
