“The HemosIL HIT-Ab(PF4-H) assay is an exemplary achievement of this goal."

HIT is a commonly occurring side effect of the administration of heparin therapy which if untreated can cause stroke, pulmonary embolism and death.

The addressing of HIT requires terminating heparin therapy, and involving expensive alternative anticoagulants.

Delay in diagnosis due to prolonged tests can increase the bleeding risk in patient, as well as increase the associated cost for the treatment.

It is addressed by the availability of the on-demand HemosIL HIT-Ab which facilitates quick treatment decisions while reducing patient risk and cost.
