Test Code DRVI3 Dilute Russell Viper Venom Time (DRVVT) Confirmation Ratio, Plasma


Advisory Information


Because no single coagulation test can identify or exclude all LAs, and because of the complexity of testing LA, one of the following Coagulation Consultation reflexive panel procedures are recommended if clinically indicated:

ALUPP / Lupus Anticoagulant Profile, Plasma

AATHR / Thrombophilia Profile, Plasma

APROL / Prolonged Clot Time Profile, Plasma



Additional Testing Requirements


Serum anticardiolipin antibody testing (CLPMG / Phospholipid [Cardiolipin] Antibodies, IgG and IgM, Serum) and anti-beta-2 glycoprotein I (B2GMG / Beta-2 Glycoprotein 1 Antibodies, IgG and IgM, Serum) antibody testing should also be performed in conjunction with coagulation-based testing for LA to enhance detection of different types of antiphospholipid antibodies.



Specimen Required


Only orderable as part of a reflex. For more information see DRVI1 / Dilute Russell Viper Venom Time (DRVVT), with Reflex, Plasma.
