Thrombosis

Thrombosis is the formation of a blood clot inside a blood vessel, obstructing the flow of blood through the circulatory system. When a blood vessel is injured, the body uses platelets (thrombocytes) and fibrin to form a blood clot to prevent blood loss. Even when a blood vessel is not injured, blood clots may form in the body under certain conditions.

Activated Protein C Resistance

Activated Protein C Resistance

£70.00

Factor V Leiden mutation is the most common inherited predisposition to abnormal clotting. It occurs in about 10% in Caucasian population. The Factor V Leiden mutation may be heterozygous (has one copy of the changed gene and one normal gene) or homozygous (has two copies of the changed gene; this is more rare). Those who are heterozygous...
Antithrombin III

Antithrombin III

£51.00
Ex Tax: £51.00
Antithrombin is a protein produced by the liver to help control blood clotting. Normally, when a blood vessel is injured, the body activates a series of coagulation factors, in a process called the coagulation cascade, to form a blood clot and prevent further blood loss. Antithrombin helps to regulate this process by inhibiting the action...

Antiphospholipid antibodies are frequently seen with autoimmune disorders such as Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). They may also be seen with HIV, some cancers, in the elderly and temporarily with infections and with some drug treatments (such as phenothiazines and procainamide). Antiphospholipid antibody tests are used to detect s...

D-Dimers (Fibrinogen Degradation Products)

£35.00
Ex Tax: £35.00
The main use of D-Dimer is in excluding venous blood clots as a cause for symptoms in the legs or lungs – it has something called 'negative predictive value'. If your D-dimer result is negative it is extremely unlikely you have a significant venous blood clot. D-dimer has no 'positive predictive value' – it is raised in many conditions an...
Factor V Leiden, MTHFR, Prothrombin mutations

Factor V Leiden, MTHFR, Prothrombin mutations

£180.00
Ex Tax: £180.00
Factor V Leiden, MTHFR mutations and Prothrombin mutations have all been linked to a risk of venous thrombosis. This triple test detects all 3 mutations. .....
Protein C

Protein C

£51.00
Ex Tax: £51.00
Proteins C helps adjust the rate of blood clot formation. When a blood vessel or tissue is injured a blood clot forms. This clot prevents additional blood loss and protects the injury until it heals. Once it is no longer needed other factors break the clot down so that it can be removed. Protein C then combines with Protein S and together...

Proteins S helps adjust the rate of blood clot formation. When a blood vessel or tissue is injured a blood clot forms. This clot prevents additional blood loss and protects the injury until it heals.
