Heparin is a polyanion, so: Calculate the amount instilled, the volume of fresh blood used to "flush" this amount to the blood collecting device, the resulting concentration in the blood/plasma sample. Use common sense to asses these numbers.

If in doubt (due to physico-chemical properties of analyte), do some in vitro studies with fresh blood/heparin.

Kindest regards, nobody

I believe there is no philosophical high-road in science,
with epistemological signposts. No, we are in a jungle
and find our way by trial and error,
building our road behind us as we proceed.    Max Born
