Not recommended for the diagnosis of immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). Preferred test for platelet-specific antibodies in suspected fetal or neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia, posttransfusion purpura, or multiplatelet transfusion refractoriness.
Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay
This test is New York DOH approved.

||Platelet Antibodies, Indirect
||Platelet Antibody Identification - Refer to Platelet Antibodies Indirect (0051050). Platelet antibody detection must be performed first.
See individual components.
If Platelet Antibodies, Indirect result is DETECTED and antibodies directed toward IIb/IIIa glycoproteins are present, then Platelet Antibody Identification will be added. Additional charges apply.
86022; if reflexed, add 86022
