Factor XI:C

Measurement of Factor XI activity
Clinical details: 
Investigating raised APTR result to check for deficiency
Reference range: 

60 - 150

Sample type and Volume required: 
Citrate plasma
800µL x 1 aliquot
Turnaround time: 
2 weeks
Special sample instructions: 

The samples should be analysed or manipulated & stored in the laboratory within 2 hours of venepuncture. Please ensure sample tubes are filled exactly to the fill-line as underfilling creates a dilution error and leads to inaccurate results.

Storage and transport: 
If the sample can not reach the laboratory within 1 hour then plasma should be made safe. This is done by separating within 1 hour of collection, freezing an aliquot and transporting to the laboratory whilst still frozen.
For clinical advice or interpretation of results, please contact the laboratory in the first instance.
