We are in the process of getting new software for the lab. I would like to know if there is a formula available for calculating the collagen lag phase (T 1/2) . Our older Chronolog aggregometer does not have this feature. Currently our techs are manually drawing, measuring and calculating it.

Hi, Diane, and thank you for your question. I’m in Biloxi, MS today where we woke up to freezing temps. The residents don’t know what hit them, it is as cold as Detroit. I have forwarded your question to Thrity Avari at Chronolog for an authoritative answer and hope to get a response in the next few days. Meanwhile, I am curious about how you are applying your collagen lag phase data, and I would like to know how others use it as well. Geo.
