Synthetic platelets

Synthetic platelets

Image shows a normal fibrin clot (A) and a fibrin clot that was formed in the presence of synthetic platelets (B). Fibrin is seen in purple and the synthetic platelets are shown in green. The images demonstrate that the synthetic platelets significantly alter clot structure, resulting in the formation of a more dense fibrin clot. (Image: Ashley Brown)
