|Actalyke MINI II Activated Clotting Time (ACT) Analyser|
The Actalyke Mini II ACT test system takes a bold step forward in the management of heparin anticoagulation. This point of care analyser can be used during cardiopulmonary bypass, cardiac catheterization, angioplasty, haemodialysis and other procedures where heparin monitoring with accurate ACT results is needed. For enhanced user flexibility and cost-effectiveness, the Actalyke Mini II instrument and test tubes are interchangeable with other ACT systems using electromagnetic clot detection principles.
The Actalyke Mini II system use a two-point clot detection mechanism - one at 0° and another at 90°. This two-point system enables the instrument to detect a clot at early fibrin formation and is less affected by clot stability. As the clot forms, the magnet travels away from detector 1 toward detector 2. Once it reaches the 46° threshold, the detectors in tandem signify an endpoint. The end result is greater test result reliability, especially on highly heparinized and diluted samples.

MAX-ACT Tubes, with an upper linearity limit of 6 units of heparin per mL of blood, are ideal for monitoring patients receiving moderate to high heparin dosages. For maximum heparin specificity, MAX-ACT contains multiple particulate activators - kaolin, celite, and glass beads - that ensure maximal Factor XII activation and compensate for potential patient sensitivity to a single activator. To perform test, simply add 0.5 cc of whole blood to the MAX-ACT tube, mix and insert into the Actalyke. Results are displayed in seconds. Store tubes at room temperature.
C-ACT Tubes contain a celite (diatomaceous earth) activator and can be used to monitor patients undergoing procedures requiring administration of moderate to high heparin concentrations. Perform testing by adding 2.0 cc of whole blood to the tube, mix, and insert tube into the Actalyke. Store Celite ACT tubes at room temperature.
|Kaolin ACT Tubes|
Kaolin ACT Tubes are useful in monitoring patients receiving moderate to high heparin concentrations, in the presence of anti-fibrinolytics. Testing requires adding 2.0 cc of whole blood to the tube, mix, and insert tube into the Actalyke. Store tubes at room temperature.
|Glass Bead ACT Tubes|
The Glass Bead ACT is useful for monitoring patients undergoing procedures requiring low to moderate heparin dosages. Perform testing by simply adding 0.4 cc of whole blood to the tube, mix, and insert tube into the Actalyke. Store G-ACT tubes at room temperature.
|AQC-HP Control Kit for MAX-ACT, C-ACT, K-ACT
The QC Kit is for use in verifying reagent performance with MAX-ACT, C-ACT and K-ACT Tubes. The kit provides two levels of quality control, normal and high. The lyophilized control is stable one hour at room temperature once reconstituted.|
|AQC-LP Control Kit for G-ACT|
The G-ACT QC Kit is for use in verifying reagent performance with Glass Bead ACT (G-ACT) Tubes. The kit provides two levels of quality control, normal and low. The lyophilized control is stable one hour at room temperature once reconstituted.
