RESULTS AND REPORTING

The Element COAG handles storage and retrieval of up to 1000 test results, right on the analyzer. Search results by sample, patient ID, date or test type for maximum reporting flexibility and rapid retrieval of trending data from patient record. Assign, unassign or delete multiple items at once. The Element COAG integrates with the HeskaView Integrated Software® Program or Heska Data Capture Utility for seamless management of patient data.
The Element COAG™ Veterinary Analyzer uses parameter specific, one-time-use test cartridges containing pre-measured test-specific reagent. After reactions occur in the test cartridge’s micro-channels, light absorbance is measured through the optical detection window. Results are calculated and stored automatically in the analyzer database, as well as displayed on the easy to use touch screen.
The Element COAG Veterinary Analyzer provides 5 specialty tests in one efficient platform.

PT/aPTT Combo Test
  • Measure both prothrombin time and activated partial thromboplastin time with one sample.
  • For use with Canine or Feline citrated whole blood samples.
  • Results in under 15 minutes.
Equine Fibrinogen Test
  • Immediate, accurate, and quantitative in-clinic fibrinogen test.
  • Results in under 15 minutes allows the clinician to treat early, improving patient outcome.
Canine Fibrinogen Test
  • Quantitative results in under 12 minutes.
  • Increased plasma fibrinogen indicates the degree of systemic inflammatory response; often before there is clinical evidence of disease.
  • Decreased plasma fibrinogen can indicate disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), bleeding or liver problems.
Canine DEA 1 Blood Typing Test
  • Determine if canine patient is DEA 1 positive or negative in under 5 minutes.
  • Make educated transfusion decisions quickly and easily.
Feline Blood Typing Test
  • Determine if feline patient is blood type A and/or B in under 5 minutes.
  • Make educated transfusion or breeding decisions quickly and easily.
