An evaluation of the heat precipitation method for plasma fibrinogen estimation

Abstract

A rapid heat precipitation micromethod for the estimation of plasma fibrinogen is described. Its validity and reproducibility have been extensively tested. The method correlates well with a more generally used thrombin-clotting technique over a wide range of fibrinogen levels.
