Biomarker profile

  • Clotting Status

Clotting Status (4 Biomarkers)

Some conditions can prevent blood from clotting properly, either causing the blood to clot too easily or causing clots to remain in the body for too long. Clotting (or coagulation) tests are often used to monitor those who are taking anticoagulants - medications that decrease the ability of the blood to clot. Anticoagulant medications are often prescribed to those who have suffered a heart attack or stroke. Those with an irregular heart beat may also take anticoagulants to prevent a first or recurrent stroke.

This test evaluates the clotting tendency of blood and the time it takes for clots to form using the standard measures of prothrombin time (PT), APTT and the International Normalised Ratio (INR) which is derived from PT. INR typically helps to inform dosage for those taking anticoagulants and to monitor progress over time.
