Linhardt said additional analysis will seek to level the procedure another million-fold to make it commercially viable.. Alternative method to produce heparin Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and University of NEW YORK at Chapel Hill can see an alternative way to produce heparin, a medication used to stop or prevent blood from clotting commonly. The results could enable the current supply of the drug – now extracted from animal tissue – to be replaced or supplemented by the synthetic version.Her father Jeremy Mathis, an ex-Marine, told AP that Coy loved to wear pink bows and decorate in girls clothes.
