The Factor XI Functional Test is a specialized diagnostic assessment conducted to evaluate the activity and functionality of Factor XI, a crucial component in the blood coagulation process. This test is particularly important for individuals suspected of having Factor XI deficiency, a rare bleeding disorder that can lead to excessive bleeding following surgery or injury. By measuring the activity level of Factor XI in the blood, healthcare providers can diagnose the condition, assess its severity, and plan appropriate treatment strategies.

At DNA Labs UAE, this essential test is offered at a cost of 730 AED. DNA Labs UAE is known for its state-of-the-art facilities and adherence to high-quality standards, ensuring accurate and reliable test results. The test is conducted by skilled professionals who specialize in hematology and coagulation disorders, providing patients with comprehensive care and support throughout the diagnostic process.

Factor XI Functional Test Cost AED:730.0 Symptoms Diagnosis

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the Factor XI Functional Test at a cost of AED 730.0. This test is used to evaluate bleeding disorders, such as hemophilia or other clotting factor deficiencies. It measures the activity of factor XI in the blood, which plays a role in the blood coagulation cascade.

Test Details

The Factor XI Functional Test is performed by drawing a sample of blood from the patient. The sample should be 3 mL of whole blood in 1 Blue Top (Sodium Citrate) tube. It is important to mix the sample thoroughly by inversion. The sample should be transported to our lab within 4 hours. If this is not possible, the sample should be processed as follows:

  • Centrifuge the sample at 3600 rpm for 15 minutes.
  • Transfer the supernatant to a clean plastic tube.
  • Centrifuge the supernatant again at 3600 rpm for 15 minutes.
  • Transfer the supernatant (PPP) to a labeled, clean plastic screw capped vial.
  • FREEZE IMMEDIATELY. Ship frozen. DO NOT THAW.

It is recommended that patients undergo overnight fasting before the test. Additionally, a duly filled Coagulation Requisition Form (Form 15) is mandatory for the test.

Method

The Factor XI Functional Test uses photo-optical clot detection as the method of analysis.

Test Type

The test falls under the category of Disorders of Coagulation.

Doctor and Test Department

The test is conducted by a Hematologist in our Test Department.

Pre Test Information

It is recommended that patients undergo overnight fasting before the test. A duly filled Coagulation Requisition Form (Form 15) is mandatory. It is also important that patients discontinue Heparin for 1 day and Oral Anticoagulants for 7 days prior to sampling, as these drugs may affect test results. Discontinuation should be done with prior consent from the treating Physician.

Test Results and Diagnosis

The Factor XI Functional Test measures the activity of factor XI in the blood. It helps determine if there is a deficiency or dysfunction of factor XI, which can lead to prolonged bleeding or abnormal clotting. The test involves adding specific reagents to the blood sample to initiate the clotting process and measuring the time it takes for the clot to form. This time is compared to a normal range to determine the functional activity of factor XI.

The results of the test can help diagnose factor XI deficiency or dysfunction and guide appropriate treatment. Treatment may include factor XI replacement therapy or other clotting factor medications to prevent or control bleeding episodes.

It is important to note that factor XI deficiency is relatively rare and may not cause significant bleeding symptoms in all individuals. Therefore, the test is typically ordered for patients with a personal or family history of bleeding disorders or for those who have prolonged bleeding after surgery or trauma.

Overall, the Factor XI Functional Test is a valuable tool in evaluating clotting disorders and guiding appropriate treatment for patients with factor XI deficiency or dysfunction.

Test Details

Factor XI is a clotting factor that plays a role in the blood coagulation cascade. It is involved in the activation of factor IX, which ultimately leads to the formation of a stable blood clot. A factor XI functional test measures the activity of factor XI in the blood.

The test is usually ordered to evaluate bleeding disorders, such as hemophilia or other clotting factor deficiencies. It can help determine if there is a deficiency or dysfunction of factor XI, which can lead to prolonged bleeding or abnormal clotting.

During the test, a sample of blood is drawn from the patient and sent to a laboratory for analysis. The laboratory will add specific reagents to the blood sample to initiate the clotting process and measure the time it takes for the clot to form. This time is compared to a normal range to determine the functional activity of factor XI.
