Noninvasive, serum surrogate marker test for assessment of liver fibrosis in patients with chronic viral hepatitis.
Quantitative Nephelometry/Quantitative Enzymatic/Quantitative Spectrophotometry/Automated Cell Count/ Electromagnetic Mechanical Clot Detection
Include an automated platelet count. Platelet count should be performed on the EDTA whole blood sample at the client site within 3 days of submission for testing.
Lavender (EDTA) or Pink (K2EDTA) AND Serum Separator Tube (SST) AND Light Blue (Sodium Citrate)
Separate serum and citrated plasma from cells ASAP or within 2 hours of collection. Do not send the EDTA whole blood to ARUP.
Transfer 3 mL serum to an ARUP Standard Transport Tube. (Min: 1.2 mL)
Transfer 1 mL platelet-poor citrated plasma to an ARUP Standard Transport Tube (Min: 0.5 mL)
Plasma (Citrated): CRITICAL FROZEN. Separate specimens must be submitted when multiple tests are ordered.
Hemolyzed specimens. All required specimens not received. No platelet count received.
Serum: Ambient: 8 hours; Refrigerated: 1 week; Frozen: 2 weeks
Plasma: Ambient: 24 hours; Refrigerated: Unacceptable; Frozen: 2 weeks
Refer to report.
