Fibrin/Fibrinogen Degradation Split Products
Ordering Recommendation
This test is NOT recommended for fibrin degradation product (FDP) testing or for evaluating coagulopathies (eg, disseminated intravascular coagulation). For FDP testing, the plasma FDP test (2006491), not the serum test, is recommended. For evaluating coagulopathies, D-Dimer (0030057) is the preferred test.

Specimen Required
Patient Preparation
Whole blood drawn into tube with Thrombin/Soybean trypsin inhibitor. (ARUP supply #16496) Available online through eSupply using ARUP Connect™ or contact ARUP Client Services at (800) 522-2787.  
Specimen Preparation
Transfer 1 mL serum to an ARUP Standard Transport Tube. (Min: 0.5 mL)  
Storage/Transport Temperature
Frozen. Separate specimens must be submitted when multiple tests are ordered.  
Unacceptable Conditions
Plasma. Specimens not collected in Thrombin/Soybean trypsin inhibitor or that have not clotted.  
Plasma test (ARUP test code 2006491) is equivalent but does not need a special tube for collection.  
Ambient: 2 hours; Refrigerated: 1 week; Frozen: 1 month  
Reference Interval
By report (reports may vary based on instrumentation)
Interpretive Data
Some hemolysis of the specimen may be seen. This will not affect the ability of Thrombo-Wellco test to detect FDP in the specimen, and will not lead to false-positive results.
