Catch them before they catch you!
Used to assess platelet function, the Buccal Mucosal Bleeding Time (BMBT), should be a part of your presurgical workup, especially for those breeds predisposed to VWD (von Willebrands Disease). Platelet dysfunction can be associated with a variety of systemic disorders and patients with dysfunctional (non-adherent) platelets may fail to clot even when platelet counts are normal. The Surgicutt® (formerly Simplate) spring-loaded lancet delivers a precisely calibrated incision allowing you to control procedural variables that could affect the interpretation of results.
Our complete 10 test kit has everything you need to start running tests today including 10 Surgicutt® single use automatic lancet devices, blotting paper, stopwatch, and instructions. (Click to download.) Watch our Tutorial!
