  • Standard and Custom Designs

Not all in-vivo thrombogenicity studies are created equal.

As the designs of medical devices continue to become more advanced, the overall placement of the device challenges traditional methods. Currently, devices subject to a standard thrombogenicity test are typically placed into the jugular vein with minimal concern as to the impact of blood flow, fit or placement. In reality the traditional design lacks the ability to ensure a proper placement of a device and it is not possible to confirm that proper blood flow has been maintained prior to starting the four-hour indwelling period.

The in-vivo thrombogenicity studies are especially challenging tests for many labs to conduct, given the required equipment, in-house technical expertise and implantation methodologies needed. APS offers you these services, plus superior surgical and interventional deployment techniques using fluoroscopy, which makes the test more reliable and reproducible.
