When you are taking warfarin or when you have unexplained or prolonged bleeding or inappropriate blood clotting, it is a good idea to test prothrombin time (PT) and the international normalized ratio (INR). PT/INR testing is done to determine the clotting tendency of blood. CoaguChek XS PT Test Strips allows users of anticoagulation medications or blood thinners such as Coumadin and warfarin to monitor and determine the coagulation of blood in the privacy of their own home. Now you can get fast and accurate results without long drives or expensive visits to the clinic.
Roche Diagnostics developed the CoaguChek XS System for home and point of care monitoring as an alternate to lab based methods with remarkable accuracy. Only 10 microliters of blood will be able to provide you with results within approximately 20 seconds to one minute. Ideal for beginners, the CoaguChek XS PT Test Strips allows blood sample to be applied to any side of the strip for convenience. Each box contains a code chip for test strip coding.
CoaguChek XS PT test strips are for use with the CoaguChek XS Home Patient System. The test strips usually have an expiration date of between 12 and 15 months and do not need to be stored in the refrigerator. Although the CoaguChek XS System was designed for home use, it is also trusted by healthcare professionals for on-the-spot analysis of coagulation levels during mobile emergency treatment, in hospital and in general practice. Trust Roche?s coagulation monitoring systems for smart, accurate technology.
