The Heparin (Anti-Xa Activity) test is performed by skilled and experienced medical staff at IntroLab. All our technicians are highly qualified and trained in this specific test.

What is Heparin (Anti-Xa Activity)?

Heparin is an anticoagulant medication used to prevent and treat blood clots. The Heparin (Anti-Xa Activity) test measures its effectiveness in a patient’s body by evaluating anti-Xa activity. This indicates how much heparin inhibits factor Xa in the blood coagulation process.

When is this test performed?

This test is typically performed when a patient is receiving heparin therapy, especially in cases involving long-term or high-dose usage. It allows for a quick and accurate assessment of whether heparin dosing needs to be adjusted. This is particularly important because excessive doses of heparin can lead to bleeding, while insufficient doses can leave the patient at risk of clot formation.

Are there any specificities and subtypes of the test?

Yes, there are different types of heparin, including unfractionated heparin (UFH) and low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH). This test can be used to measure the effectiveness of both types of heparin.
