Thrombophilia Screening

Written by Mark Hill on .

Indications for Thrombophilia Screening:

All requests for Thrombophilia Screening must be approved by a Haematology Consultant. This approval is based on NICE clinical guiedeline (NG158).  Samples from patients with insufficient clinical details will be stored untested for one month. In this situation please contact a Consultant Haematologist for advice.

Samples for any coagulation tests must be filled to a minimum of 90% of the fill line indicated on the sample tube. Any sample filled below this level will be reported as insufficient and a repeat sample will be required.
