This test is used for the detection of fibrin/fibrinogen degradation products in patients suspected of having thrombotic disorders. Fibrinogen is a blood clotting factor produced by hepatocytes and megakaryocytes.

Factor XIII is a zymogen found in the blood of humans and other animals. It is activated by thrombin to factor XIIIa. XIIIa is an enzyme in the blood clotting system that crosslinks fibrin.
Factor XII initiates the intrinsic coagulation cascade and is linked to the fibrinolytic, kallikrein-kinin, and complementary systems.
Factor XI deficiency is a rare genetic bleeding disorder caused by reduced levels and insufficient activity of a blood protein called factor XI. Factor XI is a clotting factor.
Factor X plays a role in blood clotting, also called coagulation, which helps you stop bleeding. Known as clotting factors, several crucial proteins, including factor X, are involved in helping the blood to clot.
Factor IX is a protein naturally produced in the body. It helps the blood form clots to stop bleeding. Factor IX injections are used to treat hemophilia B, which is sometimes called Christmas disease.
Factor VIII (FVIII) is an essential protein for blood clotting, also known as antihemophilic factor (AHF). In humans, factor VIII is encoded by the F8 gene.
Factor VII deficiency is a blood clotting disorder that causes excessive or prolonged bleeding after injury or surgery.
Factor VI is Unassigned – old name of Factor Va. Factor Va is a cofactor for the serine protease factor Xa, and in the presence of calcium ions they collectively assemble on a phospholipid surface to form the prothrombinase complex
Factor V deficiency is also known as Owren’s disease or parahemophilia. It’s a rare bleeding disorder that results in poor clotting after an injury or surgery.
