Evaluates the level and function of fibrinogen in relation to possible bleeding disorders, abnormal bleeding disorders, abnormal fibrinolysis, and sometimes used to determine an individual’s overall risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Two types of testing are commonly used to evaluate Fibrinogen.

  • Fibrinogen Activity: Measures the ability and function of fibrinogen to convert into insoluble fibrin.
  • Fibrinogen Antigen: Determines if decreased fibrinogen activity is caused by insufficient fibrinogen or dysfunctional fibrinogen.
