LEXINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--T2 Biosystems, a company developing direct detection products enabling superior diagnostics, today announced the presentation of data strongly correlating T2Hemostat™ results with patients’ clinical outcomes. In 26 patients who presented with chest pain and underwent cardiac catheterization, T2HemoStat was compared to a common platelet activity assay, where T2HemoStat accurately correlated to 100% of bleeding event cases while the comparator did not identify bleeding events in any patients. T2HemoStat also correlated to twice the number of thrombotic cases than the comparator. These data are complemented by additional presentations that demonstrate T2MR®’s unique ability to identify novel clot biology, which may account for previously unexplained clot behavior while providing new clinical insights into the formation and degradation of blood clots. T2HemoStat is the Company’s novel system for the rapid detection of physical changes in a blood sample, identifying novel clot biology while also measuring hemostasis characteristics such as coagulation, fibrinolysis and platelet function from finger stick size, small volumes of whole blood or plasma on a single, compact instrument.
