  • Aspirin Sensitivity

    Test Name:Aspirin Sensitivity
    Epic Order Code:LAB5053
    CPT Code:85576  
    Specimen(s) Type:Plasma; Full tube required.
    Acceptable Container(s):
    Testing Schedule:24 hrs/day, 7 days/week
    Turn Around Time:STAT: 1 hour
     Routine: 4 hours
    Collection Information:Must be collected between 2 and 30 hours after ingestion of aspirin. Obtain specimen by standard collection procedures, using a 21 gauge or larger needle. If only Aspirin Sensitivity is being collected, draw 5 mL into a red top tube, discard and then collect tube for Aspirin Sensitivity. Tube must be full.
    Transport Information:Deliver to lab immediately to ensure platelet viability. All specimens must be signed into the laboratory.
    Reference Clients:If unable to deliver to the lab immediately, store and transport specimen at room temperature. Specimen must be tested within 4 hours.
    Causes for Rejection:Improperly labeled, incorrect container, contaminated, insufficient quantity, incorrect/delay in transport, grossly hemolyzed, clotted, under or over-filled tube.
    Reference Range:A result of <550 ARU correlates to patient sensitive to aspirin. A result of >550 ARU correlates to patient not on aspirin or aspirin resistance.
    Additional Information:Correlate results with other clinical and lab data. Platelet counts <1000,000cm and a HCT of <33% may effect the ability to obtain a result with the assay.
     NEVER collect behind an EDTA purple top tube as this effects platelet function.
