The CoaguChek XS system, is dedicated to patients on VKA therapy testing at home or on the go.
CoaguChek system devices allow to measure the PT Time within one minute and with a single drop of blood. CoaguChek PT test strips are used by patients in the home and by professionals in medical settings to determine blood clotting time of patients taking anti-coagulants, also known as blood thinners, and to diagnose some disease conditions.
It produces results equivalent to those obtained with reference laboratory methods and also compares very closely to the professional systems, the CoaguChek XS Plus and XS Pro systems, as it uses the same technology and the same strips.
