Detection and quantitation of inhibitors against coagulation factor V


This test is not useful for the detection of a lupus-like circulating anticoagulant inhibitor, a nonspecific circulating anticoagulant, or other inhibitors that are not specific for coagulation factors.

Profile Information A profile is a group of laboratory tests that are ordered and performed together under a single Mayo Test ID. Profile information lists the test performed, inclusive of the test fee, when a profile is ordered and includes reporting names and individual availability.

Testing Algorithm Delineates situations when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

Testing begins with coagulation factor V activity assay with dilutions to evaluate assay inhibition; if the factor V activity assay is normal or increased, then a technical interpretation will be provided.


If the factor V activity assay is decreased, then an inhibitor screen will be performed at an additional charge to look for specific factor V inhibition and a professional interpretation will be provided. If specific inhibition is apparent, the titer of the inhibitor will be determined.
