T2Plex Instrument (Clinical Product)

Compact, fully-integrated hemostasis measurement instrument

T2Plex is the instrument that will run the T2HemoStat Panel. Together, T2Plex Instrument and T2HemoStat Panel will provide a broad set of hemostasis measurements including platelet activity, fibrinogen, clotting time and fibrinolysis. The T2Plex Instrument leverages T2 Biosystems’ proprietary T2MR technology and is designed to be a compact, fully-integrated instrument capable of rapidly providing comprehensive hemostasis measurements at point of care.

T2Plex is designed to offer the following advantages:

  • Potential to replace multiple instruments with one compact instrument
  • Easy-to-use system that novice technicians can operate
  • Small, tabletop instrument that can be used at the point of care

Large unmet need in diagnosis of coagulopathy 

For critical trauma patients with impaired hemostasis, diagnostic results are typically required in fewer than 45 minutes to aid clinicians in making the most effective treatment decisions. The need for rapid diagnosis is not met by current diagnostic methods, which typically involve multiple instruments and can take hours to process a patient specimen. As a result, physicians often make critical decisions for treatment of impaired hemostasis with limited or no diagnostic data. For trauma alone, there are over ten million patients in the United States annually who present with symptoms of impaired hemostasis.1,2 It is estimated that 25% of all trauma patients suffer from trauma-induced coagulopathy. These patients require rapid and frequent hemostasis assessments to determine the presence and severity of abnormal coagulation.

 
The T2Dx Instrument and T2Candida Panel have received marketing authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. All other T2 Biosystems products are considered investigational and for research use only.
