  • Publication number: 20200063184
    Abstract: In some embodiments, the invention provides methods for detecting and/or classifying an anticoagulant at a therapeutically relevant amount or higher in a patient, including subjecting a sample of a control blood component (known not to contain the anticoagulant) to a clotting assay in the presence of a Factor Xa reagent to obtain a control clotting measurement; and subjecting a sample of a blood component from a patient suspected of having the anticoagulant to the clotting assay in the presence of the Factor Xa reagent to obtain a patient clotting measurement, wherein the patient clotting measurement sample greater than the control clotting measurement indicates the presence of the anticoagulant at a therapeutically relevant amount or higher in the patient. In some embodiments, the invention includes methods for classifying an anticoagulant as an anti-Factor Xa or a direct thrombin inhibitor anticoagulant using a clotting assay in the presence of an ecarin reagent.
