BACKGROUND It is still not clear whether native or platelet count adjusted platelet rich plasma (PRP) should be used for platelet aggregation measurements. AIM To evaluate the necessity of using adjusted PRP in platelet function testing. METHODS Platelet aggregation with native PRP and adjusted PRP (platelet count: 250/nl, obtained by diluting native PRP with platelet poor plasma) was performed on the Behring Coagulation Timer (BCT(R)) using ADP, collagen, and arachidonic acid as agonists… CONTINUE READING
