  • Euglobulin Clot Lysis

    Test Name:Euglobulin Clot Lysis
    Epic Order Code:LAB1117
    CPT Code:85360  
    Specimen(s) Type:Plasma; Full tube required.
    Acceptable Container(s):
    Testing Schedule:Monday - Thursday, 8 am - 3 pm
    Turn Around Time:STAT: NA
     Routine: 2 days
    Collection Information:No special patient preparation is required. Obtain specimen by standard collection procedures. If only Euglobulin Clot Lysis is being collected, draw 5 mL into a red top tube, discard and then collect Euglobulin Clot Lysis tube. A full tube is required.
    Transport Information:Deliver to lab immediately on ice. All specimens must be signed into the laboratory.
    Reference Clients:If unable to deliver to the lab within 1 hour, centrifuge the specimen for 10 minutes at 3500 RPM to ensure platelet poor plasma. Remove plasma from cells, taking care to avoid the WBC/platelet buffy layer and place into a transport tube. Store and transport at 2-8° C for up to 3 hours. If testing is delayed beyond this, the sample must be stored and transported frozen at -20° C and delivered to lab within 2 weeks.
    Causes for Rejection:Improperly labeled, incorrect container, contaminated, insufficient quantity, incorrect/delay in transport, grossly hemolyzed, clotted, under or over-filled tube.
    Reference Range:Lysis time < 2 hours, complete at 24 hours.
    Additional Information:Decreased fibrinogen (<80 mg/dL) may cause shortened lysis time. Lysis time < 60 minutes may be associated with activated fibrinolysis seen in liver failure, or DIC. Lysis should be complete by 24 hours. If not complete at 24 hours, it suggests abnormal fibrinolysis.
