Hematology Testing

Guiding patient care and treatment through integrated laboratory, research and clinical solutions.

Hemostasis Lab and Platelet & Neutrophil Immunology Lab


Versiti’s specialized focus in hematology includes research and diagnostic services for medical conditions such as anemia, including iron-deficiency anemia; platelet and white blood cell disorders; sickle cell disease; and bleeding and clotting disorders.

 

Bleeding Disorders

  • von Willebrand disease (VWD)
  • Hemophilia (factor VIII or factor IX deficiencies)
  • Platelet function defects

Clotting Disorders

  • Rare factor deficiencies
  • Protein C and S deficiencies
  • Prothrombin gene mutation
  • Thrombotic thrombocytopenia purpura (TTP)
  • Hyperhomocysteinemia
  • Elevated LP(a) (also known as lipoprotein(a))
  • Factor V Leiden
  • Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS)
  • Antithrombin III gene mutation

Versiti Diagnostic Labs provides specialized testing for the evaluation of disorders involving abnormal numbers of blood cells, including immune and non-immune disorders of red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. 

Available evaluations include:

  • Pancytopenia
  • Leukopenia
  • Thrombocytopenia
  • (Auto) Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP)
  • Drug-induced cytopenia (anemia, thrombocytopenia, leukopenia)
  • Anemia, including iron deficiency, other nutritional anemias and autoimmune hemolytic anemias
  • Leukocytosis
  • Thrombocytosis (reactive and essential thrombocythemia)
  • Polycythemia (suspected primary – PV, and secondary)
  • Myelodysplasia
  • Myeloproliferative disorders (myelofibrosis, polycythemia vera, essential thrombocythemia
  • Hematology in pregnancy (gestational thrombocytopenia, ITP)
  • Monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS)

We also provide comprehensive functional and genetic testing in support of inherited and immune platelet and neutrophil disorders. Our targeted focus includes:

  • Drug-induced thrombocytopenia, including HIT
  • Idiopathic thrombocytopenia (ITP)
  • Fetal and neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (FNAIT)
  • Allo- and autoimmune neutropenia
  • Drug-induced neutropenia
  • Neonatal alloimmune neutropenia

1800 - VWD Diagnostic Evaluation

Reflexive algorithm always includes: FVIII Activity, VWF Antigen, VWF GPIbM Activity, and VWF Collagen III Binding. Reflex testing may include: VWD Type 2B Binding, VWD Type 2N Binding, VWF Propeptide Antigen, and/or VWF Quantitative Multimer

 
5502 - Heparin-Induced Thrombocytopenia - PEA

This test is designed to detect heparin-dependent platelet antibodies in the serum from patients suspected of having Heparin-Induced Thrombocytopenia (HIT).

 
1280 - VWF Collagen IV Binding

This assay tests the capacity of platelet adhesion at sites of blood vessel injury and can identify qualitative binding issues.

 
1070 - VWF GPIbM Activity

This ristocetin-independent activity assay is an alternative to VWF Ristocetin Cofactor Activity with superior precision and sensitivity.

 
5703 - Neonatal Alloimmune Thrombocytopenia (NAIT)-Initial Paternal

This order set includes: Platelet Antigen Genotyping Panel. To complete this workup, order Neonatal Alloimmune Thrombocytopenia (NAIT)-Initial Screening Maternal with Paternal (test code 5603) for maternal sample.

 
5544 - Platelet Autoantibodies

This assay detects direct and indirect glycoprotein-specific antibodies in eluates prepared from washed patient platelets.
