Platelet aggregation is widely used in clinical laboratories to evaluate patients with bleeding disorders of suspected platelet aetiology. Simultaneous monitoring of ATP release as a measure of dense granule secretion provides additional information to aid diagnosis. There is, however, no standard way of performing or interpreting these tests. The present… CONTINUE READING
