• REAGENTS
  • The response of available aPTT reagents to heparin varies significantly. (dit.ie)
  • The aim of this study was to highlight the differences between aPTT reagents stored in a dried format to select the most suitable formulations to be used for the development of point-of-care diagnostic devices used for monitoring of unfractionated heparin dose response. (dit.ie)
  • Most of the reagents were more sensitive to heparin in dried, rather than in liquid form. (dit.ie)
  • Dried reagents based on kaolin as a surface activator were notably more effective in achieving short CT than others, while dried reagents composed of silica and synthetic phospholipids were the most sensitive to heparin. (dit.ie)
