The Actalyke- Activated Clotting Time test system takes a bold step forward in the management of heparin anticoagulation. Actalyke analyzers are for use at the point of care during cardiopulmonary bypass, cardiac catheterization, angioplasty, hemodialysis and other procedures where heparin monitoring with accurate ACT results is needed. For enhanced user flexibility and cost-effectiveness. Actalyke instruments and test tubes are interchangeable with other ACT systems using electromagnetic clot detection principles.
|MAX-ACT||MAX-ACT Tubes (Gray Flip-Top), 50 tubes/box|
MAX-ACT Tubes, with an upper linearity limit of 6 units of heparin per mL of blood, are ideal for monitoring patients receiving moderate to high heparin dosages. For maximum heparin specificity, MAX-ACT contains multiple particulate activators - kaolin, celite, and glass beads - that ensure maximal Factor XII activation and compensate for potential patient sensitivity to a single activator. To perform test, simply add 0.5 cc of whole blood to the MAX-ACT tube, mix and insert into the Actalyke. Results are displayed in seconds. Store tubes at room temperature.
|C-ACT||Celite ACT Tubes (Black Flip-Top), 50 tubes/box|
C-ACT Tubes contain a celite (diatomaceous earth) activator and can be used to monitor patients undergoing procedures requiring administration of moderate to high heparin concentrations. Perform testing by adding 2.0 cc of whole blood to the tube, mix, and insert tube into the Actalyke. Store Celite ACT tubes at room temperature.
|K-ACT||Kaolin ACT Tubes (Yellow Flip-Top), 50 tubes/box|
Kaolin ACT Tubes are useful in monitoring patients receiving moderate to high heparin concentrations, in the presence of anti-fibrinolytics. Testing requires adding 2.0 cc of whole blood to the tube, mix, and insert tube into the Actalyke. Store tubes at room temperature.
|G-ACT||Glass Bead ACT Tubes (White Flip-Top), 50 tubes/box|
