START 5 Coagulation

1. Biological Effect: Hemocompatibility Tests 
2. Turnaround time: 6 weeks
3. Sample Requirements:


30 cm² (test item < 0.5 mm thick);
18 cm² (test item ≥ 0.5 mm thick);
1 gram;
5 ml;
at least 3 test items;


ISO 10993-4

The purpose of the study is to determine the influence of the test item to the blood coagulation pathway. After direct exposition of human plasma to the test item the difference in coagulation time is being established. Comparison of the changes between test item, negative control and blank are the basis of the evaluation.
