Under the term coagulation diagnostics one considers medical laboratory test methods that check blood clotting. 

 
Method

There are methods used to assess the conduct of plasmatic coagulation (global tests and specific tests for selected coagulation factors), methods for assessing the function of platelets (platelet function testing), and methods for assessment of both plasmatic and cellular coagulation (thrombelastometry). The spectrum includes clot-based, chromogenic, immunological and viscoelastic methods.

In 2013, Senova was able to expand its core competencies in coagulation diagnostics by affiliating JenAffin GmbH. Thus Senova not only gained many years of industry experience. Now Senova is able to support its customers in the development of diagnostic reagents, assays and tools to measure changes in the plasmatic and cellular coagulation system, such as coagulation methods, photometric methods, viscoelastic methods, platelet aggregometry and POCT applications. The development of substance-specific strategies for stabilizing reagents is an important point as well as the method adaptation to different analysis systems. A proprietary method for the targeted modification of the specificity of coagulation systems allows the optimized use in in-vitro diagnostics. 

Application

The focus is on the development of products to ensure the efficient and safe treatment of bleeding disorders and to their diagnosis. Coagulation diagnostics of Senova provide important tools for treatment decisions, treatment monitoring and treatment optimization. We particularly put an emphasis on requirements for laboratory diagnostics that occur with the introduction of new drugs such as direct oral anticoagulants (thrombin and factor Xa inhibitors).
