Measurement of platelet adhesiveness including the use of diatomaceous silica (celite).


PMID 4289289

Abstract

Methods of platelet adhesiveness to glass and celite have been developed. The technical merits of these methods have been compared with a method using adenosine diphosphate (ADP). The aspects of platelet stickiness measured by the various techniques may be somewhat different. Bearing this in mind, the reproducibility of the results using each of the three methods has been assessed on a series of healthy donors.
