FlowChamber is developing the Hemostatic Flow Analyzer that consists of the FlowChamber, an imaging system, software and accessories.

 

FlowChamber

Whole blood flows through the disposable FlowChamber and interacts with specific agonists that depends on the presence of specific receptors in the thrombus formation process. The following hemostatic parameters can be determined simultaneously:

 

  • Platelet aggregation, adhesion and interaction

  • Thrombus size

  • Granule secretion

  • Fibrinogen binding

  • Clotting time

  • Maximum lysis

 

In the near future many other parameters can also be measured. Important to share is that all data are available within 20 minutes at 37 degrees Celsius and adjustable shear rates (1000 or 1600 s-1). A full list of hemostatic parameters that are available can be found here.

 

Microscopy imaging system

The interaction between the blood and the agonists is monitored by a microscopy imaging system. The system we are developing will be temperature-controlled, adapts the room temperature stored FlowChamber and is a closed easy-to-use system with full automation. In 2020 this system will be on the market for clinical use.

 

Software

Images obtained by the microscopy imaging system are analyzed and yield quantitative and qualitative vales of the hemostatic parameters. The software is fully automated and very user-friendly.
