The effect is more pronounced with reagents whose phospholipid content is relatively low (12) and may be greater with the kaolin clotting time (KCT) than with the dilute Russell viper venom test (dRVVT) (14).
We wished to compare these 2 approaches by using the common (4) dilute Russell viper venom test (dRVVT) as the clotting assay.
LA detection was performed on filtered plasmas according to the criteria of the Scientific and Standardization Committee (SSC) of the International Society on Thrombosis and Hemostasis (ISTH) (9) with screening and confirmatory procedures carried out with 3 tests: home-made silica clotting time (SCT), home-made and commercial dilute Russell viper venom tests (dRVVT), and an activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) with hexagonal phospholipids.
