PHOSPHATIDYLSERINE/PROTHROMBIN ANTIBODIES

Test Code: LABAPSPT
Description: This assay is designed for the detection of IgG or IgM class antibodies to phosphatidylserine/prothrombin complex (PS/PT) in serum or plasma, as an aid in the diagnosis of autoimmune thrombotic disorders such as anti-phospholipid syndrome (APS). Antiphospotidylserine/prothrombin antibodies correlate with LA and may be useful in situations where LA testing is not feasible for technical reasons. Antiphosphotidylserine/prothrombin antibodies are not incorporated into consensus guidelines and should not be used as the sole criteria for diagnosis of APS.
