Apparatus for performing a platelet inhibition test
An apparatus for performing a platelet inhibition test on a sample of blood is provided, comprising a plurality of test cells, the cells being adapted for receiving an aliquot portion of the sample, wherein each of the cells comprises an anticoagulant and a clotting activator, and wherein at least one of the cells further comprises a platelet inactivating agent, wherein a clotting time is determined for each of the aliquot portions, and wherein a relative clotting time for each of the aliquot portions comprising the platelet inhibitor is determined as compared to a reference clotting time for a cell containing no platelet inhibitor, wherein the relative clotting times for the cells are determinative of the platelet inhibition of the sample.
