Fibrinogen Activity Blood Test

Your Price- $62.00

Description

Use:

Fibrinogen is a protein produced by the liver and secreted into the blood. Fibrinogen plays an important role in controlling bleeding during an injury.

 

Fibrinogen levels can be used to assess the effectiveness of thrombolytic therapy.

Fibrinogen is an acute-phase reactant and can often become significantly increased in conditions involving tissue damage, infection, or inflammation.

 

Increased levels may be seen in smokers, during pregnancy, and in women taking oral contraceptives.

 

Fibrinogen levels can be diminished in advanced liver disease.

 

Very high levels of heparin, presence of direct thrombin inhibitors, or fibrin breakdown products may falsely reduce fibrinogen levels because they interfere with the rate of clot formation. Lipemia or hemolysis may interfere with this assay.

 

This test should be used if you have received an abnormal Prothrombin Time (PT) or activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (aPTT)

 

Recommended For:

To diagnose fibrinogen deficiency, dysfibrinogenemia, disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) and to monitor the effectiveness of thrombolytic therapy.

No special preparation is necessary prior to blood sample collection.
