As we all know, blood routine examination is a very common examination item in medical institutions, and serum extraction is particularly important, but the means to obtain serum is through blood separation. Under normal circumstances, after the blood is isolated from the body, it takes more than 1 hour to coagulate, and then extract it. Because of its long coagulation time, it is difficult to meet the requirements of rapid detection in many cases.

Therefore, some additives are often used to help rapid detection. Coagulants are commonly used to shorten blood coagulation time and improve detection efficiency. However, many people will confuse anticoagulants and coagulants, especially heparin sodium. It is unclear whether it is a coagulant or an anticoagulant, as well as the difference between the two. Therefore, the following details about heparin sodium and coagulants.

In fact, heparin sodium is an anticoagulant. Due to its strong negative charge and the role of strengthening antithrombin, it can fundamentally prevent the formation of thrombin and effectively prevent platelet aggregation. It is suitable for blood anticoagulation and will not interfere with the detection indicators. At the same time, it has a large anticoagulation ratio and no dilution effect on blood.

The role of coagulants is to promote blood coagulation, which is essentially different from heparin sodium anticoagulants. One is to promote coagulation, the other is to prevent coagulation, which must be clear. In addition, many people will pay attention to the performance problems of coagulants, such as: accelerating time, accelerating efficiency, coagulation results and separation effects. What do these mainly refer t

1. Coagulation time: the time required for complete coagulation after full contact between blood and blood.

2. Coagulation promoting efficiency: the amount of blood needed to achieve excellent coagulation effect, and the role played by it.

3. Coagulation effect: whether there is serum exudation after blood coagulation.

4. Separation effect: whether centrifugation after blood coagulation can achieve the effect of completely extracting serum, and whether there are other adverse phenomena.

Although heparin sodium anticoagulant and coagulant are essentially different, no matter which one is used, it is to meet the detection requirements quickly and conveniently, and promote more accurate detection results. Since its establishment, Desheng's core series of products are blood collection additives, such as serum gel, heparin series, EDTA series, coagulants, etc. Its product quality has been recognized and praised by many large, small and medium-sized enterprises. If its strength is not strong, it will certainly not stand on the market for 18 years. If you have relevant needs, please call for advice!
