HemoSonics’ Quantra Hemostasis System is easy to operate and provides fast, comprehensive whole-blood coagulation analysis at the point of care or in laboratory-based settings in less than 15 minutes. Clinicians don’t need to wait on test results during a serious life-threatening bleeding event, and as a result, patients receive optimized interventions as quickly as possible and only when needed. The Quantra Hemostasis System consists of the Quantra Hemostasis Analyzer with QPlus and QStat Cartridges. The Quantra System is FDA-cleared for use in point-of-care settings, such as operating rooms, intensive care units, and hospital laboratories, and requires minimal resources to maintain, operate, and interpret.

The Quantra System uses innovative SEER Sonorheometry (sonic estimation of elasticity via resonance), a proprietary medical-grade ultrasound technology that measures the coagulation properties of a whole blood sample.
