About Platelet Solutions Ltd

Platelet Solutions Ltd is a spin-out company of the University of Nottingham formed as the outcome of many years of research and experience in the Thrombosis and Haemostasis Group. The company focuses on the provision of products and services for platelet function testing.

Platelet function testing is required for diagnosis of abnormal bleeding and to monitor platelet function in those who are at-risk of vascular events such as heart attack or stroke.

Previously, platelet function analysis had to be performed immediately after taking the blood sample but our patented method allows samples to be processed using simple disposable kits and be posted for expert analysis either in PSL’s facility or an alternative central facility.

Through our unique fixatives and kits, Platelet Solutions provides a major improvement in the convenience and cost of platelet function testing and analysis. Samples can be collected and processed using easy-to-use test kits by anyone with expertise in blood collection. Patented fixing solution stabilises the samples for reliable analysis at a remote location or at a later time to suit customer needs.
