Such was confirmed by the flow cytometry that exhibited the highest increment in larger platelets, with increase ranging between 10 and 20 µM of ADP. However, 20 µM could not be used because it would cause excessive aggregation. Platelets contained in population 1 (P1) area are all of the same size as that of the resting platelets and they are assumed not to be activated. Whereas, the platelets in population 2 (P2) area tend to be bigger. It is assumed that they are activated. As more agonists are added, the percentage of larger platelets increases. Such is likely to arise because as the platelets grow bigger, the more they scatter forward and sideways. In a graph showing change in size, it is possible for flow cytometer to detect a shift that takes place in the size of the platelets. The platelet aggregation testing aim at measuring the…

This is because, different from EDTA, the activation of platelets in vitro tends to be less spontaneous when using…
