Validation of the minimal citrate tube fill volume for routine coagulation tests on ACL TOP 500 CTS®.


INTRODUCTION CLSI recommends a minimal citrate tube fill volume of 90%. A validation protocol with clinical and analytical components was set up to determine the tube fill threshold for international normalized ratio of prothrombin time (PT-INR), activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) and fibrinogen. METHODS Citrated coagulation samples from 16… (More)
