7 - 10 days
Turnaround time is defined as the usual number of days from the date of pickup of a specimen for testing to when the result is released to the ordering provider. In some cases, additional time should be allowed for additional confirmatory or additional reflex tests. Testing schedules may vary.
Citrated plasma, frozen
0.5 mL (Note: This volume does not allow for repeat testing.)
Light blue-top (3.2% sodium citrate) collection tube
Separate plasma from cells by centrifugation. Centrifuge separated plasma to yield platelet-poor plasma. Transfer plasma to a plastic transport tube before freezing.
Freeze. Stable at room temperature for 6 hours, and for 3 additional freeze/thaw Instructions cycles.
This assay is intended for the evaluation of plasma emicizumab levels (µg/mL) in patients receiving emicizumab therapy.
Patients receiving factor VIII replacement therapy in addition to emicizumab may show falsely elevated results, as will patients with significant native factor VIII levels (greater than 25% native factor VIII activity). If factor VIII inhibitor levels are required while the patient is on emicizumab, this can be ordered by using Factor VIII Chromogenic Bethesda Profile, for Patients on Emicizumab .
This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by Labcorp. It has not been cleared or approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
