The anticoagulant sodium citrate prevents clotting by binding calcium; if there is less calcium present in the patient's plasma, residual sodium citrate in the test sample will bind calcium used in the test assay, leading to erroneous results.
Thus, so the theory goes, if a patient has a high hematocrit, he has less plasma; therefore, the standard tube contains too much sodium citrate for the amount of plasma and, thus, either the amount of citrate in the tube should be reduced or more blood should be added to the tube in order for a valid result to be obtained.
Control experiments were performed by adding either no supernatant (100 [micro]L of sodium citrate buffer instead) or supernatant mixed with protease inhibitor cocktail (Sigma Chemical Co.
