About Us

What makes us different?

Through our unique fixatives and kits, Platelet Solutions provides a paradigm shift in the assessment of platelet function. Samples can be collected and processed using easy-to-use test kits by anyone with expertise in blood collection. Patented fixing solution stabilises the samples for reliable analysis at a remote location or at a later time to suit your needs.

If platelet function testing is something you have only just identified as a requirement, or if your requirement is intermittent, simply collect the blood sample, process, fix and send to us – we will do the rest including reporting of results – no need for capital investment in dedicated equipment; no training; and no maintenance costs.

Are you interested in assessing the effect of drugs, food or environmental factors on platelets? Are you interested in assessing platelets in stroke, cardiovascular diseases, interventional procedures, cancer, diabetes, surgical studies or veterinary science?

If so, then we are here to help, get in touch and we can discuss your requirements. We will work closely with you to understand your specific needs and provide you with a tailored solution.


Our Story

Platelet Solutions Ltd is a spin-out company of the University of Nottingham formed in 2011, and is the outcome of many years of research and experience in the Thrombosis and Haemostasis Group. The company focuses on the provision of products and services for platelet function testing.

Platelet function testing is required for diagnosis of abnormal bleeding and to monitor platelet function in those who are at-risk of vascular events such as heart attack or stroke.

Previously, platelet function analysis had to be performed immediately after taking the blood sample but our patented method allows samples to be processed using simple disposable kits and be posted for expert analysis.

Our aim is to make platelet function testing reliable and accessible to everyone.
