Ristocetin-induced platelet aggregate formation and adherence to the probe of an impedance aggregometer.

Abstract

The examination of the interaction between ristocetin and platelets generally is performed in an optical aggregometer where aggregate formation is detected by a change in turbidity. Ristocetin also will induce conductivity changes in an impedance aggregometer with either fresh whole blood or fresh platelet-rich plasma due to aggregate attachment to the… (More)
