Is the heparin sodium blood collection tube an anticoagulant tube?

Release time:


As a frequently used test tube in clinical practice, heparin sodium blood collection has the advantages of accurate blood collection and good safety performance. At the same time, it effectively improves the detection efficiency and saves time for medical staff by completing the collection, testing, and other steps in the same test tube. Although widely used in clinical practice, there are still many people who do not know the role of heparin sodium in blood collection? Even wondering if it's actually an anticoagulant tube? So the following will focus on introducing this aspect to everyone.

1Heparin source

Heparin is a natural anticoagulant component that was extracted from animal liver organs in the early stages, such as the pig small intestine. Compared with other anticoagulant reagents, it has its own unique source and performance, and is a natural component. From this perspective, it can play an anticoagulant role. It is made into heparin sodium and added to a vacuum tube, which naturally becomes an anticoagulant tube.

2Heparin sodium mechanism

In addition, the reason why it can be added to test tubes as an anticoagulant is due to its unique properties. After being in contact with blood in the tube, it can control the activity of thrombin from the source, prevent fibrinogen from turning into fibrin, and thus prevent blood clotting. So from the perspective of its mechanism, it is added to the test tube to have an anticoagulant effect, which is called a heparin anticoagulant tube.

3Heparin tube testing items

Based on its performance, heparin anticoagulant tubes can be used to detect liver and kidney function, blood lipids, and blood sugar, and are also ideal analytical tubes for blood gas analysis and erythrocyte sedimentation rate measurement. Its application is beneficial for medical staff to diagnose and analyze diseases, and is also a commonly used method for detecting diseases in clinical practice. So from a medical perspective, most of its applications require testing items that prevent blood clotting, and natural heparin blood collection vessels are anticoagulant tubes.

As a professional manufacturer of research and development and production of blood sampling additives, Desheng produces heparin sodium and heparin lithium that can have anticoagulant effects. However, they are both used as in vitro reagents added to test tubes, not directly injected into the human body. We hope everyone can understand this clearly. At present, the company's serum separation gel, heparin salt, and EDTA potassium salt products have become hot selling products in the market, with nearly a thousand cooperative customers and receiving continuous praise.
