Assays Available

University College London has asked Departments to stop providing external specialist referral assays.

We will therefore not be able to perform specialist haemostasis referral assays after the end of 2018.

This includes assays for:

  • ADAMTS13,
  • Factor XIII,
  • Alpha-2-Antiplasmin,
  • Plasminogen,
  • Fibrinogen Antigen and
  • Amidolytic Factor X.

In order to complete any outstanding assays on samples already received, we will not be able to accept any blood samples after Friday 14th December 2018.

We hope that you will be able to find an alternative referral laboratory

ADAMTS13 assays are available at

  • HSL Laboratories (UCLH),
  • St Thomas’ Hospital, Hallamshire Hospital Sheffield,
  •  Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham,
  • Leeds Royal Infirmary,
  • Bristol Royal Infirmary, and
  • other institutions).

Most of these institutions also perform assays for other specialist haemostasis assays.
