ROTEM® Analysis: Thromboelastometry
While standard clotting assays just detect the starting time of clotting, thromboelastometry (TEM®) provides information on the whole kinetics of hemostasis: clotting time, clot formation, clot stability and lysis.
The different parameters in thromboelastometry (TEM®) are dependent on:
- the activity of the plasmatic coagulation system
- platelet function
- many factors which influence these interactions, including several drugs
This gives a complete view of the secondary hemostasis.
