The Science

Decisions to transfuse blood are often based on patients falling into a specific category or protocol. For example, many trauma victims are transfused with one unit of plasma for each unit of red blood cells they receive and one unit of platelets for every ten units of red blood cells transfused. Coagulation Sciences’ MCTS™ will compare the ability of multiple therapies to normalize clotting. The information provided will aid physicians in the selection of treatments targeted to each patient’s individual blood clotting profile.
