  2. Resource Description
    The VerifyNow System detects platelet activity by measuring in vitro platelet aggregation in a blood sample exposed to specific agonists. This includes inhibition of platelet activity in response to antiplatelet therapies. The VerifyNow® System is a whole blood, used in the laboratory or point-of-care setting, which measures platelet induced aggregation as an increase in light transmittance. It consists of a turbidimetric-based optical detection instrument, single-use test devices, and associated quality control. In general, platelet function testing measures the activity of platelets. Therapies that inhibit platelet function have been used extensively to prevent the clinical complications of atherothrombosis. Three classes of potent antiplatelet agents, including acetylsalicylic acid(aspirin), P2Y12inhibitors (e.g. thienopyridines), and glycoprotein (GP) IIb/IIIainhibitors, have been developed.
