CAPTSureTM

CAPTSureTM is a new tool developed with the help of an international panel of paediatric thrombosis experts. The tool is available at no cost for clinical use and for investigator-initiated studies in an academic and/or publically funded healthcare setting pursuant to terms and conditions outlined in our standard license.

CAPTSureTM is also available for use in industry-initiated clinical trials and for other industry-related purposes pursuant to terms and conditions outlined in our standard licenses with industry.

If you are interested in using CAPTSureTM, please contact Ms. Susana Andres at susana.andres@sickkids.ca
