When every minute counts … fast DOAC testing matters.

DOASENSE’s mission objective is changing the landscape of testing for DOACs (new synthetic oral anticoagulants) with novel and quick point-of-care urine tests

The determination of DOACs has long been limited to blood sampling approaches, with all their potential limitations, and a rapid assessment of the anticoagulant effect of non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (Direct Oral AntiCoagulants – DOACs) by point-of-care testing (POCT) so far has been an unmet clinical need.

DOASENSE offers products for specific testing for DOACs in urine

Tests which are easy to use and easy to interpret, reproducible, and patient friendly

Listen to what opinion leaders think about DOASENSE's solutions:
Typical clinical scenarios where testing for specific DOACs can be of value

    • Stroke (e.g. before thrombolytic therapy)
    • Trauma
    • Emergency procedures
    • Evaluating for venous thromboembolism
    • Spontaneous hemorrhage
    • General surgery or invasive procedures
    • Other situations where medication history may not available

In each of these situations the objective is establishing the absence of DOACs in the patient prior to procedure
