Cascade® M-4
Manual Coagulation Analyzer
Cascade M-4 is a manual hemostasis
analyzer that is ideal for all routine
clotting assays - PTs, aPTTs,
thrombins, fibrinogens and factor
assays. Operation is simple and
economical, with only a 15” x 15”
footprint.
Easy-to-Use Keypad, On-Screen
Prompts – All tests are clearly
enumerated on the keypad for fast,
easy test selection. Computer prompts
conveniently step the user through
testing.

State-of-the-Art Photo Optics –
Four independent photo-optic
detection sources allow samples to
be read in duplicate or in single.
On-board Quality Control –
Cascade M-4 stores standard curves,
calculates patient results, INRs and
aPTT ratios as well as calculating
mean, SD and CV, plus plotting and
printing Levy-Jennings QC charts.

Hemostasis Controls and
Reference Plasmas
Prothrombin Time
Helena Thromboplastin reagent is prepared from rabbit brain
tissue and is suitable for automated, semi-automated and
manual applications.
Our controls and reference plasmas offer a sensible means
to monitor accuracy and precision in hemostasis testing.
Thromboplastin-LI
• Ready for use; no mixing required
• Stability of open reagent: 14 days at 2-8°C
• Target ISI value: < 1.5

Helena aPTT reagents are ready-to-use
liquids for convenience, high quality for
precision, and priced for economy. Multiple
kit sizes are available. Reagents are suitable
for photo-optical, mechanical and manual (tilt
tube) methods.
