Why Get Tested?

To help evaluate inappropriate blood clot formation (thrombotic episode or thromboembolism); to determine whether you may have a protein C or protein S deficiency.

When to Get Tested?

When you have had an unexplained blood clot; when your newborn has a severe clotting disorder; sometimes when a close relative has an inherited protein C or protein S deficiency.

Sample Required?

A blood sample drawn from a vein in your arm.

Test Preparation Needed?

You must wait at least 10 days after a thrombotic episode and be off oral warfarin (Coumadin®) anticoagulant therapy for 2 weeks before having this test done.
