The Protein C Functional Test is a specialized blood test designed to measure the activity of Protein C, a vital protein in the body that plays a crucial role in regulating blood clotting. Protein C helps to prevent blood clots from forming in the veins, thereby reducing the risk of thrombosis. This test is particularly important for individuals who have a history of blood clotting disorders, unexplained thrombosis, or those with a family history of clotting abnormalities. It helps in diagnosing Protein C deficiency, which can lead to an increased risk of developing blood clots.

The test involves drawing a blood sample from the patient and analyzing it to assess the functionality of Protein C in the blood. It’s a critical diagnostic tool for doctors to recommend appropriate treatment plans for patients with clotting disorders.

In the United Arab Emirates, the Protein C Functional Test is available at DNA Labs UAE, a leading diagnostic center known for its state-of-the-art facilities and accurate testing services. The cost of the test at DNA Labs UAE is 930 AED. This investment in health can provide crucial information for managing and preventing complications related to blood clotting disorders. Patients interested in undergoing this test should consult their healthcare provider to understand its relevance to their health condition and to get a referral if necessary.

PROTEIN C FUNCTIONAL Test

Cost: AED 930.0

Symptoms, Diagnosis, and Test Details:

The Protein C Functional Test is a laboratory test that measures the activity of protein C in the blood. Protein C is a natural anticoagulant protein that helps regulate blood clotting. The test is used to evaluate the risk of developing abnormal blood clotting disorders, such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism.

It is also used to monitor the effectiveness of anticoagulant therapy, such as warfarin, in patients with known clotting disorders.

During the test, a blood sample is collected from the patient and sent to a laboratory for analysis. The laboratory measures the activity of protein C by adding a substance that activates the protein and measuring the time it takes for the blood to clot.

A normal protein C activity level is typically between 70-140% of the average activity level. If the protein C activity is lower than normal, it may indicate a higher risk of blood clotting disorders. Conversely, if the protein C activity is higher than normal, it may indicate a lower risk of blood clotting disorders.

It is important to note that the Protein C Functional Test is just one of several tests used to evaluate blood clotting disorders. It is often used in conjunction with other tests, such as the Protein C Antigen Test, to provide a more comprehensive assessment of a patient’s clotting function.

The results of these tests, along with a patient’s medical history and symptoms, help healthcare providers make appropriate diagnoses and treatment decisions.

Sample Collection and Conditions

Sample Condition: 3mL whole blood in 1 Blue Top (Sodium Citrate) tube. 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 3600rpm for 15 min. and transfer supernatant to a clean plastic tube.
  • Centrifuge this supernatant again at 3600rpm for 15 min. and finally transfer the supernatant (PPP) to 1 labelled clean plastic screw-capped vial. Freeze immediately. Ship frozen. Do not thaw.
  • Overnight fasting is preferred.

Pre Test Information

Overnight fasting is preferred. 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. Duly filled Coagulation Requisition Form (Form 15) is mandatory.
