Characteristics and Application of Heparin Sodium Raw Materials

Release time:


In clinical medicine and biological research, blood sampling is a common operation used to obtain blood samples for diagnosis, monitoring, and research. However, blood is prone to clotting in vitro, leading to loss of fluidity in the blood sample, which is not conducive to experiments and analysis. To solve this problem, an anticoagulant is usually added to the blood collection vessel to prevent blood clotting. At present, there are various types of anticoagulants for blood collection in the market, among which the most commonly used is heparin sodium. Below, we will provide a detailed analysis of it for everyone.

1、 Characteristics of heparin sodium raw materials

Heparin sodium is a natural polysaccharide anticoagulant, usually extracted from pig intestinal mucosa and made into a powder. It has a strong anticoagulant effect, which can inhibit coagulation factors in the blood and prevent blood from clotting in blood collection vessels. Its mechanism of action is by binding with antithrombin III to form a complex, thereby preventing the activation of thrombin and inhibiting the coagulation process.

2、 Application of heparin sodium raw material

It is widely used in blood collection processes in clinical medicine and laboratory research. Blood samples treated with heparin sodium anticoagulation are suitable for routine blood tests, biochemical analysis, and other testing projects. Due to the powerful anticoagulant effect of heparin sodium, only an appropriate amount of heparin sodium needs to be added to the test tube to maintain the fluidity of blood samples, reduce the possibility of detection errors, and ensure the accuracy of sampling.

3、 Comparison with other anticoagulants

At present, there are other types of anticoagulants on the market, such as EDTA potassium salt, sodium citrate, and sodium fluoride. In contrast, heparin sodium is more commonly used in blood collection. EDTA potassium salt is mainly used for blood routine testing, but it is also used for specific analyses in some laboratories, such as blood type identification. Sodium citrate is mainly used for detecting the clotting time of blood clots. Although sodium fluoride also has anticoagulant effects, its application in certain experiments is limited due to its impact on certain biochemical indicators.

Heparin sodium, as a commonly used anticoagulant for blood collection, has a strong anticoagulant effect and a wide range of applications, making it an indispensable reagent in clinical medicine and laboratory research. Although there are other anticoagulants to choose from, the advantage of heparin sodium lies in its strong anticoagulant effect and minimal impact on other experimental indicators. Therefore, most of the blood collection process relies on it to complete.
