The aPTT is insensitive to low molecular weight heparin (LMW Heparin) and therefore cannot be used to monitor the therapy. It is widely reported that LMW heparin therapy does not require laboratory monitoring but should you require assistance contact us so that we might arrange a suitable heparin assay from referral sites (factor Xa inhibition assay).
