Chrono-log was one of the first manufacturers of the Platelet Aggregometers based on the Born method to measure platelet aggregation in platelet-rich plasma (PRP) samples. Further development hereon produced the first Lumi-Aggregometer, that measures the ATP release from the dense granules – providing the simultaneous measurements of a secretions study and platelet aggregation in a single sample.

Advancements in Chrono-log technologies lead to the development of the first Impedance Aggregometer – creating the ability to test platelet aggregation within whole blood samples. Testing whole blood means less sample volumes required, elimination of excessive sample manipulation, and increased sensitivity to the effects of anti-platelet drugs in samples. This system has improved the turnaround time in laboratories, and became more user friendly with the development of Disposable Impedance Electrodes.
