We therefore determined the influence of storage time and temperature on prothrombin time, activated partial thromboplastin time, thrombin time, fibrinogen, factors V and VIII, antithrombin III, protein C and S in plasma from 20 healthy subjects and 20 patients receiving heparin therapy. The stability in plasma, defined as the period during which there was a change of less than 10 % from the initial… CONTINUE READING
