Additional Information

  • Transfer separated serum to a plastic transport tube as quickly as possible after the clot has formed (within 30 minutes of collection). Values obtained with different assay methods should not be used interchangeably in serial testing. It is recommended that only one assay method be used consistently to monitor each patient's course of therapy. This procedure does not provide serial monitoring ; it is intended for one-time use only.
