ThromboLUX is a medical device that uses dynamic light scattering to analyse samples. ThromboLUX automatically saves sample characteristics and results that can be downloaded and handled in Excel. ThromboLUX implementation in several US hospitals demonstrated improved patient outcomes and safety while lowering health care costs. Clinical data analysis is a critical yet complicated component of proving the value of ThromboLUX to hospitals and accomplishing our mission to empower decisions for the best use of platelets.
