The root extract of Artemisia vulgaris with Oryza sativa promotes the blood clotting. Due to its protein-binding property, it could participate in thickening effects of the blood. With the emerging need for low cost-effective blood coagulant and gel separator, the researchers realized the urge in developing an alternative clot activator and gel separator from the root extract of Artemisia vulgaris with Oryza sativa. The study determined the effectiveness of clotting and gel separator property of the root extract Artemisia vulgaris with Oryza sativa using the normal human blood samples. An experimental approach to research method was used. The researchers were able to isolate the Oryza sativa starch and the root extract of Artemisia vulgaris and were subjected to different physical and phytochemical tests to confirm the presence of tannin. The participants were undergoing 10 to 12 hours of fasting before blood collection. The blood collected using the commercially prepared Serum Separator Tube and the alternative clot activator and gel separator made from the root extract Artemisia vulgaris with Oryza sativa. The data gathered from the participants were analyzed using mean and ANOVA. The study revealed that on the different concentrations of the Artemisia vulgaris root Extract the 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% has significant effect on the blood clotting time, and there are substantial variations on the blood clotting time using different concentrations of the Artemisia vulgaris root extracts and the commercially prepared Serum Separator Tube. It was concluded that varying levels of the root extract of Artemisia vulgaris do not affect the analysis of the Blood analytes. The researchers recommend to chemically isolating the specific component, pure tannin, from the roots of Artemisia vulgaris using the other methods for the extraction of tannin and other components to determine other components of the Artemisia vulgaris that may improve the clotting time and the gel separator.
