TEG 6s System
Introducing the NEW TEG® 6s Hemostasis Analyzer! The TEG 6s system provides rapid, comprehensive and accurate identification of an individual’s hemostasis condition in a laboratory or point-of-care setting. Featuring an innovative, all-in-one cartridge, the TEG 6s delivers the same quality test results without the complicated test preparation process. TEG 6s allows clinicians to drive personalized, clinically and economically sound treatment and monitoring decisions with confidence.
The TEG 6s measures the same physical properties as TEG 5000, with assessment of clot viscoelasticity throughout the coagulation process.
New to the TEG technology is the measurement of clot viscoelasticity using the resonance method. To measure the clot strength with the resonance method, the sample is exposed to a fixed vibration frequency. With LED Illumination, a detector measures up/down motion of the blood meniscus.
Frequency leading to resonance is identified and then converted to a TEG readout. Stronger clots have higher resonant frequencies and higher TEG readouts.
TEG 6s assays are performed in automatically loaded microfluidic cartridges designed for simultaneous performance of multiple TEG assays.
Preparing the blood sample for the TEG® 6s analysis is very simple. There is no need for controlled pipetting or prior manipulation of reagents. The only requirement is to transfer a small, unmetered amount of blood to the loaded cartridge from a sample tube with citrate or heparin.
