Abstract
Purpose: This study aimed to investigate the reliability of coagulation tests after storage of centrifuged
samples in the primary collection tube with plasma remaining on top of the cells at room temperature
and to compare results with current CLSI guidelines and previous studies.
Methods: Surplus blood samples from 20 patients were stored in the primary collection tube at room
temperature, and were tested 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24, and 48 hr after the initial testing. The tests included aPTT/
PT/fibrinogen/D-dimer, coagulation factors (F) VIII/IX/XI/XII/II/V/VII/X, von Willebrand factor (vWF) antigen
and activity, antithrombin III (ATIII), fibrinogen degradation product (FDP), and dilute Russell’s viper
venom time (dRVVT) screening and confirmation. A clinically significant difference was determined by a
percentage change of > 10% according to the 99% confidence interval.
Results: Storage of the sample in aPTT/PT/FVIII/FIX/FXI/FXII/FII/FV/FVII/FX/dRVVT screening and confirmation
provided acceptable results up to 12/24/2/12/6/4/6/2/8/6/12, and 24 hr, respectively. For fibrinogen/
D-dimers/vWF antigen and activity/ATIII/FDP, storage up to 48 hr also provided acceptable results. Compared
to CLSI guidelines, the same acceptable storage periods for PT/FXII, shorter periods for FVIII/FV,
and longer periods for the others tests were identified. Compared to previous studies that stored plasma
after aliquotation, the acceptable storage periods were generally shorter for the coagulation factor assays.
Conclusion: The recommendations from the CLSI guidelines are too stringent in general but more strict
storage limits should be applied to FVIII/FV. When additional coagulation factor assays are ordered and
additional sample acquisition or preparation is not possible, more strict acceptable storage time criteria
would be needed.
