We calculate the uniform and staggered susceptibilities of two-chain spin-1/2 Heisenberg ladders using Monte Carlo simulations. We show that the gap extracted from the uniform susceptibility and the saturation value of the staggered susceptibility are independent of the sign of the interchain coupling J⊥ in the asymptotic limit J⊥/⊥J0. Furthermore, we examine the existence of logarithmic corrections to the linear scaling of the gap with J⊥.
