  Replacement Agreement for XL Analyzer

Accurate Activated Clotting Time (ACT) testing is essential for monitoring heparin therapy during cardiac procedures and dialysis. Actalyke instruments and reagent tubes provide the sensitivity, reliability and rapidity needed to make timely treatment decisions at the point of care.
All Actalyke instruments use a two-point clot detection mechanism, enabling clot detection at the early fibrin formation stage with less variation due to clot fragility. This provides greater precision, especially on highly heparinized and diluted samples. The Actalyke XL is a premier analyzer offering dual-well testing, excellent reproducibility and strong data handling features. The XL is fully compatible with all ACT tubes. Helena offers a full line of Actalyke ACT tubes, including traditional glass bead, kaolin, celite® plus new MAX-ACT.

  Actalyke Electronic Clotting Tube, 1/pkg

The Electronic Clotting Tube is a single device which simulates patient sample clots at three therapeutic heparin levels: 100 seconds (Level I Normal), 300 seconds (Level II Abnormal) and 500 second (Level III Abnormal) for daily quality control of all Actalyke instruments. To ensure consistent and proper instrument operation, this check should be performed once per shift on any shift in which the analyzer is used. The Electronic Clotting Tube features a flashing status indicator when activated as well as low battery indicator.

MAX-ACT™ Tubes

Cat. No. Item
MAX-ACT MAX-ACT Tubes (Gray Flip-Top), 50 tubes/box

MAX-ACT Tubes, with an upper linearity limit of 6 units of heparin per mL of blood, are ideal for monitoring patients receiving moderate to high heparin dosages. For maximum heparin specificity, MAXACT contains multiple particulate activators - kaolin, celite, and glass beads - that ensure maximal Factor XII activation and compensate for potential patient sensitivity to a single activator.
 
Celite Tubes
