Bovine Plasma w/ 8% Sodium Citrate

The bovine plasma offered by Bio Nutrientes is obtained by centrifugation of bovine blood collected under anticoagulant (sodium citrate). Each batch of bovine plasma is produced under strict controls, from collection to final packaging.

Bio Nutrientes do Brasil classifies and tests its products before shipping them to its customers around the world. The physical-chemical and microbiological characteristics follow international standards.

Bovine plasma for heparin testing is used in clinical laboratories to evaluate the anticoagulant activity of heparin. Heparin is a commonly used anticoagulant in medical practice to prevent the formation of unwanted blood clots.

The heparin test involves adding a known amount of heparin to a sample of bovine plasma. Subsequently, the coagulation of the plasma is measured after the addition of an activating substance. The coagulation time is recorded and compared to a reference time. Heparin prolongs the coagulation time, reflecting its anticoagulant activity.

This type of test is important for monitoring the dosage and efficacy of heparin in human or animal patients receiving this medication. It is used to ensure that the dose of heparin is adequate to prevent blood clots without causing excessive bleeding. Additionally, the heparin test can also be used to check for the presence of heparin in biological samples or evaluate the activity of other anticoagulants.

The use of bovine plasma for this test occurs because bovine plasma has less interference from other coagulation factors present in human blood, allowing for a more accurate assessment of the anticoagulant activity of heparin.
