Anticoagulants Test

Our Anticoagulants test focuses on measuring the Activated Clotting Time (ACT). This test evaluates the effectiveness of anticoagulant therapy by assessing the time it takes for your blood to clot after the addition of activators. Monitoring ACT levels is crucial for patients on anticoagulant medication to ensure they are within the therapeutic range and at a reduced risk of bleeding or clotting.

Included Tests

ACT measures the time it takes for your blood to clot after the addition of activators, such as kaolin or celite. It’s commonly used to monitor patients on anticoagulant therapy, particularly those receiving unfractionated heparin during cardiac surgery or other procedures. Monitoring ACT levels helps ensure appropriate anticoagulation and reduces the risk of bleeding or clotting complications.


Monitoring ACT levels is crucial for patients receiving anticoagulant therapy, such as unfractionated heparin, to prevent bleeding or clotting complications. ACT testing helps ensure that anticoagulation is within the therapeutic range, optimizing treatment efficacy and patient safety.

Patients undergoing cardiac surgery, cardiopulmonary bypass procedures, or other interventions requiring anticoagulation with unfractionated heparin may benefit from ACT monitoring. It’s also recommended for individuals on long-term anticoagulant therapy to manage conditions such as atrial fibrillation or venous thromboembolism.

Fasting is typically not required for ACT testing. However, it’s essential to inform your healthcare provider about any medications you’re taking, particularly anticoagulants or blood thinners, as they may affect test results.
