The phospholipid content of different activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) reagents was determined and compared to heparin sensitivity. The seven reagents included were those most widely used amongst participants of the U.K. National External Quality Assessment Scheme (NEQAS) at the time of study. Heparin sensitivity was assessed using the APTT ratios obtained by more than 300 NEQAS participants on five plasmas prepared from patients receiving unfractionated heparin. The concentrations… CONTINUE READING
