About the Quantra™ System
The Quantra system is a rapid, easy-to-use diagnostic platform that utilizes consumable cartridges to run a panel of tests. The initial QPlus™ Cartridge measures the treatable aspects of coagulation in under 15 minutes. The Quantra Hemostasis Analyzer is designed for use in critical care settings which require that results be generated quickly from an instrument that is easy to operate at the point of care. The Quantra System is commercially available in Europe.
HemoSonics is a medical device company offering a novel point-of-care diagnostic platform to guide the management of critical bleeding to improve outcomes and reduce healthcare costs by enabling more targeted transfusion of blood products. The Quantra System is designed to transform the way clinicians manage coagulation dysfunctions by providing comprehensive, timely information on coagulation status at the point of care. HemoSonics is headquartered in Charlottesville, VA, with research, development and manufacturing facilities in Durham, NC. For more information, visit www.hemosonics.com.
