“Developing and pioneering new solutions that address the most pressing unmet clinical needs are a driving force for our team at HemoSonics. Innovation is at the core, as it informs everything we do each and every day,” said HemoSonics President and CEO Bob Roda. “We believe that placing innovation at the center of our mission, helps us best serve the people who matter the most — patients at risk of bleeding who may benefit from guided blood transfusions. We appreciate the judges’ recognition of the Quantra Hemostasis System as we continue to make innovation a cornerstone of what we do as we move into the future.”
HemoSonics’ Quantra Hemostasis System is easy to operate and provides fast, comprehensive whole-blood coagulation analysis at the point of care 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 in hospital laboratories, and requires minimal resources to maintain, operate, and to interpret.
Innovation is a crucial part of HemoSonics culture. 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.
