Extended Coagulation Test

Our Extended Coagulation test provides a comprehensive evaluation of your blood’s clotting ability by measuring five key parameters: PT (Prothrombin Time), INR (International Normalized Ratio), FIB (Fibrinogen), TT (Thrombin Time), and APTT (Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time). These tests are essential for diagnosing and monitoring various bleeding and clotting disorders.

Included Tests

PT measures the time it takes for your blood to clot. It evaluates the function of the extrinsic and common coagulation pathways and is used to monitor the effectiveness of anticoagulant therapy, assess liver function, and diagnose bleeding disorders.

INR is a standardized way of expressing PT results, ensuring consistency across different laboratories and testing methods. It’s commonly used to monitor patients on oral anticoagulant therapy, such as warfarin, to ensure they are within the therapeutic range and at a reduced risk of bleeding or clotting.

Fibrinogen is a protein essential for blood clot formation. Measuring fibrinogen levels helps diagnose bleeding disorders, liver disease, and conditions that affect fibrinogen levels, such as disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC).

TT measures the time it takes for a clot to form after thrombin is added to the blood sample. It helps evaluate the final step of the coagulation process and can detect abnormalities in fibrinogen function or the presence of inhibitors.

APTT measures the time it takes for your blood to clot after adding a substance that triggers the intrinsic coagulation pathway. It helps evaluate the function of factors VIII, IX, XI, and XII, as well as the effectiveness of heparin therapy and diagnose certain bleeding disorders.

Extended Coagulation test


Coagulation tests like PT, PTT, and INR are crucial for assessing blood clotting function and diagnosing various bleeding disorders or clotting disorders. They are also essential for monitoring patients on anticoagulant therapy to prevent complications.

Individuals with a history of bleeding or clotting disorders, those on anticoagulant therapy, or those undergoing surgery may benefit from this test. It’s also recommended for patients with liver disease or other conditions that may affect coagulation.

Fasting is typically not required for coagulation tests. However, if you’re taking medication that may affect clotting function, such as anticoagulants or blood thinners, inform your healthcare provider before the test.
