Collect specimen in a blue top (citrate 3.2%) tube. Mix by inversion. Specimen should arrive at lab within 3 hours of collection; transport at room temperature. Alternatively, centrifuge, aliquot plasma into a plastic tube, and freeze the specimen within 4 hours of collection. Transport frozen specimen on dry ice. Collection of the blood through lines that have been previously flushed with heparin should be avoided. If the blood must be drawn through a VAD (vascular access device), the line should be flushed with 5 mL of saline and the first 5 mL of blood or six dead space volumes of the VAD discarded.
Please provide clinical history (brief description of the reason for testing, e.g., history of easy bruising and menorrhagia, family history of von Willebrand disease) and a listing of current and recent medications, including oral contraceptives, anticoagulants, and factor replacement therapy/DDAVP.
Panel includes Hexagonal Phospholipid Neutralization (HEXAG), Dilute Russell's Viper Venom Test (DRVVT), Partial Thromboplastin Time (PTT), and Prothrombin Time with INR (PT7). Note that both Cardiolipin Antibody and Lupus Anticoagulant are referred to as phospholipid antibodies. Test may include pathologist interpretation of results at an additional charge. By ordering this test, the clinician acknowledges that a pathologist interpretation will be performed and billed as a separate additional charge if indicated.
