Sodium citrate is used as anticoagulant which means that it prevents blood from clotting. Sodium citrate acts as an effective anticoagulant because of its mild calcium-chelating properties. Adding sodium citrate to blood prevents it from clotting. Sodium citrate is the preferred anticoagulant because factor V is relatively stable in citrated blood.
