Roche Diagnostics CoaguChek Analysers Include The CoaguChek XS, CoaguChek Pro II and CoaguChek INRange.
The CoaguChek Analysers and Meters are convenient, portable and user-friendly instruments for monitoring oral anticoagulation therapy. These CoaguChek analysers determine the PT (Prothrombin Time) & INR value (International Normalized Ratio) from a drop of capillary whole blood – making them simple, precise and reliable.What is Coagulation?
Coagulation is the formation of blood clots inside the body. Proteins in the blood, called fibrins, and small elements in the blood, called platelets, work together to form a clot, which helps stop bleeding when you have a cut or injury.What is PT/INR?
PT stands for “prothrombin time,” or the time it takes for blood to clot. INR is short for “international normalized ratio.” This is a calculation for standardizing results from PT tests. Essentially, PT/INR is a measure of whether your blood is clotting at a safe rate. You may see this referred to as PT monitoring, INR monitoring, or PT/INR.
