The PFA-100 is a device that simulates high shear dependent platelet function in vitro and thus is particularly useful for screening for von Willebrand's disease (VWD). The aim of this study was to assess the overall potential of the PFA-100 as a primary clinical screening tool using the wide spectrum of clinical samples assessed for platelet function within our institution. The PFA-100 test was performed using both collagen/ADP (CADP) and collagen/epinephrine (CEPI) cartridges on samples from… CONTINUE READING
