The one-channel-ball coagulometer MC 1 is used in smaller laboratories with low sample throughput and also for spezial tests in research.
The processing of all routine tests as PT, aPTT, fibrinogen and clotting factors is rapid and safe. The test results are indicated in %, INR, ratio and seconds in a clear and illuminated double-row graphic display and transmitted additionally as hardcopy to a thermo printer or to the laboratory EDP.
The measurement is started with the automatic 3-volume pipette or manually with any normal laboratory pipette.
The samples to be tested are positioned in the incubation and pre-heating area which is tempered to exactly 37.2°C . (Via the service menue the temperature can steplessly be adjusted to a range between 30°C and 42°C .)
The sort of probes (clarity level) is not important for the ball method as only the fibrin formation is used as indicator.
