December 2011

The Accumetrics VerifyNow test uses whole blood to detect platelet aggregation optically. It is easy and quick to perform, available 24 hours a day and is moderate in cost. It is used for monitoring the effect of clopidogrel on platelets, either to find resistance in patients given a loading dose in preparation for surgery or in patients having a thrombotic event while using clopidogrel.
