Clinical Significance

Coll/EPI        Coll/ADP
< =173 sec      Not Done
Platelet Function appears adequate. Result consistent with no aspirin ingestion or patient is an Aspirin Non-Responder.
 
Coll/ EPI        Coll/ADP
>173 sec        <=126 sec
Results consistent with those of an Aspirin Responder or recent ingestion of antiplatelet medications. Also consistent with any of the following: mild thrombocytopenia, low hematocrit, mild platelet dysfunction or mild von Willebrand disease.
 
 Coll/EPI        Coll/ADP
>173 sec         >126 sec
Results consistent with those of an Aspirin Responder or recent ingestion of antiplatelet medications. Also consistent with any of the following or combination of: thrombocytopenia, low hematocrit, platelet dysfunction, von Willebrand disease.  Additional follow-up may be warranted if clinically indicated.

Clinical Interpretation

Reference Range:

Collagen/EPI: 69 - 173 Seconds
 
Collagen/ADP: 54 - 126 Seconds

Coll/EPI          Coll/ADP
< =173 sec     Not Done
Platelet Function appears adequate. Result consistent with no aspirin ingestion or patient is an Aspirin Non-responder. The effects of ADP receptor blockers such as Clopidogrel are unpredictable.
Coll/EPI           Coll/ADP
>173 sec        <=126 sec
Results consistent with those of an Aspirin Responder or recent ingestion of antiplatelet medications. Also consistent with any of the following: mild thrombocytopenia, low hematocrit, mild platelet dysfunction, mild von Willebrand disease.  The effects of ADP receptor blockers such as Clopidogrel are unpredictable.
 Coll/EPI            Coll/ADP
>173 sec         >126 sec
Results consistent with those of an Aspirin Responder or recent ingestion of antiplatelet medications, such as GPllb/llla receptor inhibitors.Also consistent with any of the following: thrombocytopenia, low hematocrit, platelet dysfunction, von Willebrand disease.  The effects of ADP receptor blockers such as Clopidogrel are unpredictable. Additional follow up may be warranted if clinically indicated.


Test Comments:

Collagen/EPI will always be performed. If Collagen/EPI is >173 sec, Collagen/ADP testing will be performed.


Methodology:
  • Platelet Function Analyzer
