Hemostasis (coagulation and fibrinolysis) is of importance in a broad range of medical disciplines. A good hemostasis diagnosis enables a good therapy, which can be rather complicated without laboratory help. Hemostasis Laboratory
will increase the clinical and academic importance of hemostasis diagnostic. In this Journal, new relevant hemostasis assays are presented in analytical detail. New insights into the biochemistry and physiology of hemostasis are the basis for assay invention and are, therefore, also subjects of “Hemostasis Laboratory.” “Hemostasis Laboratory” publishes original research articles and reviews on:
Assay techniques in hemostasis (primary, secondary, tertiary hemostasis, i.e. thrombocytes, plasma, fibrinolysis) that are of clinical relevance;
Biochemistry / pathobiochemistry of hemostasis that are of clinical relevance;
Physiology / pathophysiology of hemostasis that are of clinical relevance.
