Tips for buying Platelet Aggregation Analyzer

  1. Facilities should carefully consider their needs before purchasing a platelet aggregation analyzer, to better select the type that would meet those needs including: previous supplier contact/presence, service concerns, staff familiarity, and delivery time are among the factors that influence the purchase of platelet aggregation analyzers.
  2. Platelet aggregation analyzers should have optical methodology, depending on the facility's needs. Platelet aggregation meter devices should also accept PRP specimens and multiple sample types as an option.
  3. Some of the required features are temperature control, as well as a temperature indicator. Some of the preferred features are an adjustable temperature range, an adjustable speed and a tachometer for the stirrer, automatic calibration, and a chart recorder. The platelet aggregation analyzers should have a printer. Display and computer interface are optional.
  4. Facilities are encouraged to evaluate the platelet aggregation analyzers for a few weeks in their own clinical environment before purchase. This enables them to verify that instrument performance as reported by the manufacturer fits the workload and sample types that the facility normally handles.
  5. One of the important selection criteria is sensitivity, which is the smallest change in either sample turbidity or impedance. This is important for platelet aggregation meter instruments that must identify platelet adherence disorders.
  6. Another crucial criterion is high degree of precision, which measures how closely a test result can be reproduced. This is important, because it reduces the need for duplicate testing to verify the accuracy of initial test results
  7. Other applications can use some platelet aggregation analyzers. These may include leukocyte aggregation studies and ATP release. Platelet aggregation meter instruments with such flexibility are extremely valuable to the laboratory, because they can be used as alternative testing devices for more costly and time-consuming analytical methods.
  8. Facilities should prefer platelet aggregation meter devices that minimize operator contact with specimens, and automate steps such as reagent addition and dilution or eliminate certain sample preparation steps, to reduce the risk of operator contamination from these hazards. Generally, there's a risk of infection involved with handling any body fluid specimen.
