Helena AggRAM® – Advanced Modular System for Platelet Aggregation Ristocetin Cofactor
The AggRAM, for platelet aggregation and ristocetin cofactor testing offers unsurpassed precision, ease of use and flexibility. AggRAM couples four-channel laser optic modules with a powerful Windows interface. Up to two modules can be run per Remote Analyser computer, providing up to eight channels to handle your workload.
Powerful, User-Friendly Interface
The AggRAM system software takes full advantage of the Windows platform. On-screen prompts step users through testing. The ability to open multiple windows greatly increases efficiency. For instance, watch the channel display in real time in one window while starting a new worklist in another. Open a third window and print previous runs or observe any combination of channels. Additional features include:
- Three levels of password protection, from user to administrator
- Quick access to data input screens
- Barcode and bi-directional LIS capable
Data Handling Features
Automatically calculates slope and max % aggregation; displays and print lag phase; automatically calculates curves and smooths; reference overlay
Includes data from one channel or four, one patient or the whole run; pulls from data archives to profile patient results over time.
Evaluates and charts QC for ristocetin cofactor based on Westgard rules; generates Levy-Jennings charts, standard curves, etc with an integral action log.
Advanced Laser Optics
Unlike the tungsten lamp optics of old, the AggRAM uses a laser diode to provide beautiful precision across all channels. Upon start-up, AggRAM performs a laser balance check to ensure reproducibility day to day, year to year. Advanced optics coupled with an improved algorithm for slope calculation greatly improve precision for ristocetin cofactor testing.
