Surgicutt Vet H and Surgicutt Vet K
Buccal Mucosal Bleeding Time
Test applicable to: Dog or CatSample: Whole Blood
Surgicutt Vet H (dog) and Surgicutt Vet K (cat) is a useful in-clinic screening device for the identification of thrombocytic and vascular bleeding disorders in dogs and cats by measuring the Buccal Mucosal Bleeding Time.
Surgicutt Vet H enables the veterinarian to make a standardised incision (white lancet -1.0mm deep and 5.0mm long) in 1/1000 second, based on an easy-to-use and simple incision lancet technique. Surgicutt Vet K (yellow lancet - 1.0mm deep and 2.5mm long). This plastic device contains a sterile and fully automated retractable incision lancet. After planar placing on the mucosa the nearly painless incision is made automatically by simply pushing the trigger. Due to the automatic retraction of the steel blade after setting the incision, there is no possibility of injury to either the animal or the vet.
The BMBT (Buccal Mucosal Bleeding Time) is the time that passes once an incision has been made with the use of Surgicutt Vet H or K until haemostasis is present.
Why test for Buccal Mucosal Bleeding Time?
