Dr Thomas Exner talks about the problem of Heparin contamination in APTT testing. A previous study (link below) showed that heparin was responsible for 39% of unexpectedly prolonged APTT tests in patient samples where the patient was not taking heparin (or warfarin). Haematex offers HRRS/Antihepca for neutralizing heparin. It replaces the usual M/40 calcium chloride solution in APTT and KCT tests to virtually eliminate the effect of unfractionated heparin concentrations up to 1 u/ml in normal plasma.
