BETA/Pak® Convenience Kit: ADP, Collagen, Ristocetin for Advanced Platelet Aggregation Studies
BETA/Pak® (ADP, Collagen, and Ristocetin) is a convenience kit containing a combination of routine platelet aggregation reagents used to elicit responses in Platelet Rich Plasma as well as an agglutination response that may be induced by the ristocetin reagent.
Provides ADP and Collagen for Basic Aggregation Responses in Platelet Rich Plasma Samples
Includes Ristocetin which Induces Platelet Agglutination in the Presence of vWF
Simplifies Laboratory Inventory Control
Conveniently Packaged for Platelet Studies
BETA/Pak® (ADP, Collagen, and Ristocetin) stands as a groundbreaking convenience kit, meticulously crafted to revolutionize platelet studies. This kit amalgamates essential platelet aggregation reagents, inducing responses in Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) while facilitating an agglutination response through the unique influence of the ristocetin reagent.
This sophisticated kit serves a dual purpose, providing ADP and Collagen for instigating fundamental aggregation responses within Platelet Rich Plasma samples. Simultaneously, it includes Ristocetin, a critical component known for inducing platelet agglutination specifically in the presence of von Willebrand Factor (vWF).
One of the significant advantages of BETA/Pak® lies in its ability to streamline laboratory inventory control, offering a comprehensive solution in a single, carefully curated package. This not only simplifies the procurement process but also ensures that researchers have the necessary tools at their disposal for in-depth platelet studies.
The convenience of BETA/Pak® is further underscored by its meticulous packaging, designed with platelet studies in mind. The inclusion of ADP (adenosine-5'-diphosphate), Collagen (Soluble Calf Skin Type 1), and Ristocetin in quantities of 1 x 0.5 mL each ensures precision and ease of use in the laboratory setting.
ADP and Collagen, as components of this kit, play pivotal roles in eliciting characteristic patterns of platelet aggregation in normal Platelet Rich Plasma. Meanwhile, Ristocetin, a key player in inducing platelet agglutination, offers a valuable tool for researchers studying the intricate interactions within PRP, especially in the presence of varying Ristocetin concentrations.
The versatility of BETA/Pak® extends to facilitating the Ristocetin Induced Platelet Aggregation Test (RIPA), allowing researchers to measure platelet agglutination in PRP under different Ristocetin concentrations. Moreover, Ristocetin can be employed in conducting the Ristocetin Cofactor Activity Test using lyophilized platelets, adding a layer of adaptability to the kit's applications.
The BETA/Pak® Convenience Kit emerges as an indispensable asset for researchers and clinicians engaged in platelet studies, offering a unified and efficient solution with a comprehensive set of reagents and applications in a convenient 0.5 mL format.
