Cascade Abrazo Haemostasis Analyser
The Cascade Abrazo is a premier analyzer offering excellent reproducibility and strong data handling features. The card based tests require just a single drop of blood to provide prompt results using a sophisticated combination of electromagnet, photodetector and software algorithms.
The Cascade Abrazo meets all the requirements for Point of Care testing including user ID, patient ID, result storage, built in barcode scanner for error-free data handling backed up by easy-to-use electronic and biological QC.
Cascade Abrazo’s accurate Activated Clotting Time (ACT) testing is essential for monitoring heparin therapy during cardiac procedures. Cascade Abrazo instruments and test cards provide the sensitivity, reliability and rapidity needed for timely treatment decisions at the point of care – in the catheterization lab or the surgical suite.
The Cascade Abrazo also offers the opportunity to perform PT/INR and aPTT testing with the relevant test cards. Further coagulation tests are in development to make Cascade Abrazo the most comprehensive coagulation management system available
