Test ID APCRR Activated Protein C Resistance V, with Reflex to Factor V Leiden, Blood and Plasma

Useful For

Evaluation of patients with incident or recurrent venous thromboembolism (VTE)

 

Evaluation of individuals with a family history of VTE

Profile Information

Test ID Reporting Name Available Separately Always Performed
APCRV Activated Protein Resistance V, P Yes Yes

Reflex Tests

Test ID Reporting Name Available Separately Always Performed
F5DNA Factor V Leiden (R506Q) Mutation, B Yes No
F5DNI APCRV/F5DNA Summary Interpretation No No

Testing Algorithm

If the assay ratio is abnormal, then factor V Leiden variant analysis will be performed at an additional charge.

 

When the activated protein C resistance V is abnormal or indeterminate and the factor V Leiden variant assay is performed, a summary interpretation will be provided.

Method Name

Optical Clot-Based

Reporting Name

APCRV, w/Reflex, P

Specimen Type

Plasma Na Cit
Whole blood


Necessary Information


If priority specimen, mark request form, give reason, and request a call-back.



Specimen Required


Blood and plasma are required.

 

Specimen Type: Whole blood

Container/Tube:

Preferred: Lavender top (EDTA)

Acceptable: Yellow top (ACD) or light-blue top (3.2% sodium citrate)

Specimen Volume: 3 mL

Collection Instructions:

1. Invert several times to mix blood.

2. Send specimen in original tube. Do not aliquot.

 

Specimen Type: Platelet-poor plasma

Patient Preparation: Fasting preferred

Collection Container/Tube: Light-blue top (3.2% sodium citrate)

Submission Container/Tube: Polypropylene vial

Specimen Volume: 1 mL

Collection Instructions:

1. For complete instructions, see Coagulation Guidelines for Specimen Handling and Processing in Special Instructions.

2. Within 4 hours of collection, centrifuge, transfer all plasma into a plastic vial, and centrifuge plasma again.

3. Aliquot plasma into separate plastic vial leaving 0.25 mL in the bottom of centrifuged vial.

4. Freeze plasma aliquot immediately at -20° C, or, ideally ≤-40° C.

Additional Information:

1. Double-centrifuged specimen is critical for accurate results as platelet contamination may cause spurious results.

2. Each coagulation assay requested should have its own vial.
