Effect of Carryover of Clot Activators on Coagulation Tests During Phlebotomy
American Journal of Clinical Pathology
A b s t r a c t We investigated the effect of clot activators carried over from the serum tube on major coagulation tests during phlebotomy. First, blood specimens from 30 normal subjects were mixed with small amounts of fluid containing clot activators, and their effects on various coagulation tests were determined. Only the value of fibrin monomer complex displayed a remarkable change when thrombin-containing fluid was added to the blood specimens. Subsequently, 100 paired blood specimensdoi:10.1309/ajcpl3lzzn9wjgzt pmid:22586048 fatcat:64bm2lrlavcxdk36iboivyzubm
