Anti-Xa heparin assay Monitors unfractionated heparin therapy Coagulation
Proteins C and S Evaluate venous thrombosis Coagulation
(BT) Bleeding time Evaluates the function of platelets Coagulation

Factor assays Detect factor deficiencies that prolong coagulation Coagulation
(FDP) Fibrin degradation products Test for increased fibrinolysis (Usually STAT with a special tube) Coagulation
Fibrinolysis The enzymatic breakdown of the fibrin in blood clots.
Fibrinogen Determines the amount of fibrinogen in plasma Coagulation
Platelet aggregation Note: aggregation (formation of a cluster) Evaluates the function of platelets Coagulation
