Another important issue addressed by Dr. James Quesenberry, St. Luke's Laboratory, Sioux City, Iowa. His message: I understood from early on that antithrombin (AT , antithrombin III, ATIII ) deficient patients can't be assayed for unfractionated heparin using the Stago chromogenic anti-Xa heparin assay. I thought this was an all-or-none issue, only a big deal in congenital severe AT deficient folks. Today I learned that clients need to locally establish the AT level below which they believe the assay in their hands at their locale to be not accurate. This seems highly impractical to do, particularly in the non-university small to medium sized community hospital setting. We were mainly curious as to how other Stago users deal with this.
