INNOVANCE PFA P2Y

Slide 20

December 2011

Recently a new cartridge became available in Europe for testing for the P2Y12 antagonists. This test is similar to the current PFA-100 tests in that it uses whole blood and a small sample. It does have an incubation step but the test is fairly rapid. A small correlation study has been performed with the gold standard LTA and also with VASP. It appears most useful for detection of poor responders of clopidogrel metabolism. The updated model of the instrument is called the PFA-200 and may soon be available in the U.S.
