Properties of optical data from activated partial thromboplastin time and prothrombin time assays.

Changes in characteristics of optical transmittance data from coagulation assays were examined as a function of concentration of coagulation proteins or anticoagulants. Transmittance data were collected for activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) and prothrombin time (PT) assays from: 1) plasmas prepared by mixing normal plasmas with deficient plasmas… CONTINUE READING
