Coagulation Analyzers

Category: Analyzers

Cemented as an essential technology in most clinical labs, coagulation analyzers continue to receive strong satisfaction ratings. Nearing universal usage, the benefits of automated clot detection, assessment of clotting factors, and the application of chromogenic, immunologic, and other methodologies render this modern technology essential to laboratory operations.


The use of coagulation analyzers dipped slightly this year compared to last (87% down from 94%), but this remains a workhorse technology in the lab.

Those facilities giving their coagulation analyzers the highest marks held fast at 87% for the third year in a row; a positive sign, as is the zero number of facilities grading their instruments as poor.

Stago leads in systems in use, while Werfen (formerly Instrumentation Laboratory), Siemens Healthineers, and Sysmex all have strong showings as well.
