Prolonged Clot Time Profile

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Determining cause of prolongation of prothrombin time or activated partial thromboplastin time


Screening for prolonged clotting times and determining the presence of factor deficiency(ies) or inhibitor (factor-specific, lupus-like, or the presence of heparin)

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.

Initial testing includes: prothrombin time (PT), activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT), dilute Russells viper venom time (DRVVT), thrombin time (bovine), fibrinogen, D-dimer, soluble fibrin monomer, and special coagulation interpretation.
If PT is > or =14 seconds, PT mix will be performed.
If APTT is >36 seconds, APTT mix will be performed.
If APTT mix is >36 seconds with no evidence of heparin in samples, platelet neutralization procedure will be performed.
If DRVVT ratio is > or =1.2, DRVVT mix and DRVVT confirmation will be performed.
If thrombin time is >23 seconds, reptilase time will be performed.

If PT, APTT, or DRVVT is prolonged, coagulation factor assays may be performed.
