The technology, commercially known as ClotChip™, uses an electrical technique called miniaturized dielectric spectroscopy, an approach that the Case Western Reserve University electrical engineering team began developing more than six years ago. The technique applies an external electric field to a drop of blood, and then quantitatively measures the impedance within the biologic fluid.
The measurements produced directly correlate to the coaguability or the ability of the blood to clot. This quantitative measurement of coagulability can then be translated into a recognizable measured scale. Additionally, the ClotChip™ also provides qualitative feedback as to the quality and firmness of the forming blood clot. These clinically actionable data points that have never before been available in many areas of medicine are now a reality with the XaTek ClotChip™.
