Heparin lithium salt - an important anticoagulant

Release time:


As an important anticoagulant, heparin lithium salt has excellent anticoagulant effects and diverse application scenarios. For example, processed blood samples can be used for checking coagulation function, conducting blood gas analysis, etc. Therefore, it has gradually become one of the indispensable reagents in clinical medicine and laboratory research. The following will provide a detailed introduction to the chemical properties, mechanism of action, application scope, and important clinical value of heparin lithium salt, in order to provide a comprehensive understanding.

1、 Chemical properties of heparin lithium salt

Heparin lithium salt is a hydrochloride form of heparin, which is a compound formed by heparin and lithium ions. Heparin is a natural polysaccharide polymer composed of glucuronic acid and aspartic acid, and due to its negative charge, it exerts ideal anticoagulant effects by binding to antithrombin III in the blood.

2、 The mechanism of action of heparin lithium salt

As an anticoagulant, heparin lithium salt mainly inhibits platelet aggregation and thrombin formation during the coagulation process by binding to antithrombin III in the blood. At the same time, it can also activate antithrombin in the body, achieving the goal of enhancing anticoagulant effect. Due to its stable and undisturbed blood components, it is also widely recognized as a reagent in clinical practice.

3、 Application scope of heparin lithium salt

Heparin lithium salt, as an anticoagulant added to test tubes, is suitable for various biochemical testing items, such as post hemodialysis and routine biochemical tests. The determination of heparin lithium anticoagulant plasma during hemodialysis can fully ensure the accuracy of the results, and has the advantage of not affecting blood cell volume and not easily causing hemolysis. In addition, in routine biochemical tests, samples treated with heparin lithium are generally centrifuged and plasma is extracted for detection, including uric acid, urea ammonia, alkaline phosphatase, creatine kinase, etc.

Heparin lithium salt, as an important anticoagulant, has ideal anticoagulant effects and a wide range of applications. It plays an important role in blood collection and laboratory testing, providing strong support for clinical medicine and biomedical research.
