Manufacturer: Sigma Amelung
Model: KC 4 A AN Micro Bench Top Coagulation Analyzer + CR-A Printer + 4-B Multipette
The KC4 A Micro Coagulation Analyzer is a semi-automated mechanical clot detection system designed for the determination of prothrombin times (PT), activated partial thromboplastin times (APTT), fibrinogen concentrations determined by Clauss methodology, and other clotting assays. Any clotting based assay, which has fibrin formation as its endpoint may be performed on the KC4 A Coagulation Analyzer. Measurement can be qualitative or quantitative. When used in conjunction with appropriate reagents, the sample can be plasma, or whole blood. The additions of both sample and reagents are manual. Time measurement of the clotting endpoint is automated.
The KC4 A Micro is an electromechanical clot detection system. The system utilizes a special cuvette in which there is a stainless steel ball. Sample is added to the cuvette. After an appropriate incubation period, the cuvette is placed into the measuring well of the KC4 A. The measuring well rotates slowly (50 rpm) causing the cuvette to rotate along its longitudinal axis. Because the cuvette is positioned at a slight angle, gravity and inertia always position the ball at the lowest point of the cuvette. Exactly opposite the ball-position is a magnetic sensor. With the addition of appropriate reagent, a timer is started. As coagulation takes place, fibrin strands form in the reaction mixture. The fibrin strands pull the ball away from its position and triggers an impulse in the magnetic sensor. This impulse electronically stops the timer.
