Mixing Studies – APTT with Prothrombin Time Studies Test

700 د.إ

-10%

Mixing Studies, which encompass both APTT (Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time) and Prothrombin Time (PT) studies, are essential diagnostic tests conducted to evaluate the clotting ability of blood. These tests are particularly useful in identifying bleeding disorders such as hemophilia and the presence of clotting factor deficiencies or inhibitors. In the APTT test, the focus is on the intrinsic and common clotting pathways, whereas the PT test assesses the extrinsic and common pathways. By combining these tests, healthcare providers can gain a comprehensive understanding of a patient’s coagulation status.

At DNA Labs UAE, the Mixing Studies test, incorporating both APTT and Prothrombin Time Studies, is available for a cost of 700 AED. This state-of-the-art facility ensures accurate and reliable results, utilizing the latest in diagnostic technology to provide patients and healthcare professionals with critical information for the diagnosis and management of coagulation disorders. With a commitment to excellence and patient care, DNA Labs UAE is a trusted choice for those in need of advanced diagnostic services.

MIXING STUDIES – APTT WITH PROTHROMBIN TIME STUDIES Test

Test cost: 700.0 AED

Test Components:

  • Prothrombin Time
  • APTT
  • Thrombin Time
  • Fibrinogen
  • Mixing studies

Sample Condition:

6 mL whole blood in 2 Blue Top (Sodium Citrate) tubes. Mix thoroughly by inversion. Transport to Lab within 4 hours. If this is not possible, make PPP within 1 hour of collection as follows: Centrifuge sample at 3600 rpm for 15 min. & transfer supernatant to a clean plastic tube. Centrifuge this supernatant again at 3600 rpm for 15 min. & finally transfer the supernatant (PPP) to 1 labelled clean plastic screw capped vial. FREEZE IMMEDIATELY. Ship frozen. DO NOT THAW. Overnight fasting is preferred. Duly filled Coagulation Requisition Form (Form 15) is mandatory.

Report Delivery:

Sample – Wed / Sat by 11 am; Report – Thu / Mon

Method:

Photo-optical Clot Detection

Test type:

Disorders of Coagulation

Doctor:

Hematologist

Test Department:

Pre Test Information

Overnight fasting is preferred. Duly filled Coagulation Requisition Form (Form 15) is mandatory. It is recommended that the patient discontinues Heparin for 1 day and Oral Anticoagulants for 7 days prior to sampling as these drugs may affect test results. Discontinuation should be with prior consent from the treating Physician.

Test Details:

Mixing studies are laboratory tests used to evaluate the presence of a coagulation factor deficiency or an inhibitor in the blood. These tests involve mixing the patient’s plasma with normal plasma and measuring the resulting clotting time.

One commonly performed mixing study is the mixing of activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) with prothrombin time (PT) studies. APTT measures the intrinsic pathway of coagulation, which is primarily affected by deficiencies or inhibitors of factors VIII, IX, XI, or XII. PT, on the other hand, assesses the extrinsic pathway of coagulation, mainly influenced by factors II, V, VII, and X.

To perform the mixing study, the laboratory technician first collects the patient’s plasma sample and performs an APTT test. If the APTT is prolonged, indicating a potential coagulation factor deficiency or inhibitor, the technician then mixes the patient’s plasma with an equal volume of normal plasma and repeats the APTT test. If the clotting time normalizes, it suggests a factor deficiency. However, if the clotting time remains prolonged, it suggests the presence of an inhibitor.

After performing the mixing study with APTT, the technician can also perform a mixing study with PT if necessary. The same principle applies, where the patient’s plasma is mixed with normal plasma, and the PT test is repeated. If the clotting time normalizes, it indicates a factor deficiency, while a prolonged clotting time suggests an inhibitor.

Mixing studies, including APTT with PT studies, are essential in diagnosing and differentiating between coagulation factor deficiencies and inhibitors. The results help guide further diagnostic testing and treatment decisions for patients with bleeding disorders.
