Avocet Medical has CE-marked for sale its patient self-testing prothrombin (PT) time meter, the AvoSure PT system, which monitors the time it takes for a sample of blood to clot after exposure to a coagulation-promoting agent. Physicians typically adjust the dosages of a patient's anticoagulant medication to keep the test within a specified range, says the San Jose, California company. The device can be used in the home or while travelling.
