Stago Educational Shorts, Episode 1: Vaccine-induced immune thrombocytopenia and thrombosis

Stago has recently launched a new series of succinct educational lectures, from coagulation experts, designed to fit around your working day.


💉Vaccine-induced immune thrombocytopenia and thrombosis (VITT) have been reported as an extremely rare side effect of certain Covid-19 vaccines. As Covid-19 vaccine roll-out continues to ramp up globally, more of such VITT cases may be observed.


In the first episode of Stago Educational Shorts, Mr Chris Reilly-Stitt, deputy manager at UK NEQAS BC, discusses the fast-moving topic of VITT, including:

  • VITT diagnosis

  • Anti-PF4 testing methods for VITT (ELISA and non-ELISA)

  • Commutability of lyophilised and liquid samples for VITT patient samples testing
