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
  • fibrinolysis
  • many factors which influence these interactions, including several drugs

This gives a complete view of the secondary hemostasis.
