Hemostasis or haemostasis (from the Ancient Greek: αἱμόστασις haimóstasis “styptic (drug)”) is a process which causes bleeding to stop, meaning to keep blood within a damaged blood vessel (the opposite of hemostasis is hemorrhage). It is the first stage of wound healing. This involves blood changing from a liquid to a gel.
Hemostasis involves three major processes:
– Narrowing (constriction) of blood vessels
– Activity of cell-like blood particles that help in blood clotting (platelets)
– Activity of proteins found in blood that work with platelets to help the blood clot (clotting factors)
HMS addresses the hemostasis testings with the world’s leading developer of hemostasis testings systems. IL ACL family of testing instruments uses advanced optical technology and sets a new standard for precision and operational simplicity, while our HemosIL reagents are first in flexibility, reliability and accuracy.
The ACL TOP Family is a complete line of Hemostasis Testing Systems—each designed with the same high standards of operation and functionality to meet the needs of your hospital and lab regardless of its size or scope. Whether running routine or highly specialized assays, ACL TOP provides Testing Process Automation in a range of instruments, ideal for low- to high-volume labs through fully integrated Laboratory Automation Systems.
