Test ID ADIC Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation/Intravascular Coagulation and Fibrinolysis (DIC/ICF) Profile, Plasma

Ordering Guidance

This profile will not detect all bleeding disorders such as von Willebrand disease. For patients with amyloidosis and bleeding symptoms, obtaining a limited bleeding diathesis profile is suggested.


Multiple coagulation profile tests are available. See Coagulation Profile Comparison in Special Instructions for testing that is performed with each profile.

Shipping Instructions

Send the 5 aliquot tubes in the same shipping container.

Necessary Information

If priority specimen, mark request form, give reason, and request a call-back.

Specimen Required

Patient Preparation: Patient should not be receiving Coumadin or heparin. If so, note on request.

Specimen Type: Platelet-poor plasma

Collection Container/Tube: Light-blue top (3.2% sodium citrate)

Submission Container/Tube: 5 Plastic vials

Specimen Volume: 5 mL in 5 plastic vials, each containing 1 mL

Collection Instructions:

1. For complete instructions, see Coagulation Guidelines for Specimen Handling and Processing in Special Instructions.

2. Centrifuge, transfer all plasma into a plastic vial, and centrifuge plasma again.

3. Aliquot plasma (1 mL per aliquot) into 5 separate plastic vials, leaving 0.25 mL in the bottom of centrifuged vial.

4. Freeze plasma immediately (no longer than 4 hours after collection) at -20° C or, ideally ≤-40° C.

Additional Information: Double-centrifuged specimen is critical for accurate results as platelet contamination may cause spurious results.


1. Coagulation Patient Information (T675) in Special Instructions.

2. If not ordering electronically, complete, print, and send a Coagulation Test Request (T753) with the specimen.

Testing Algorithm

Initial testing includes prothrombin time (PT), activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT), thrombin time (TT), fibrinogen, D-dimer, and disseminated intravascular coagulation/intravascular coagulation and fibrinolysis (DIC/ICF) profile interpretation.

If PT is >13.9 seconds, then PT mix will be performed at an additional charge.

If aPTT is ≥38 seconds, then aPTT mix and dilute Russell viper venom time (dRVVT) will be performed at an additional charge.

If dRVVT ratio is ≥1.20, then dRVVT mix and dRVVT confirmation will be performed at an additional charge.

If fibrinogen is <150 mg/dL, or clinically indicated, then PT-fibrinogen will be performed at an additional charge.

If D-dimer is >500 ng/mL fibrinogen equivalent units (FEU), then soluble fibrin monomer will be performed at an additional charge.

If aPTT mix is ≥38 seconds and TT is <35.0 seconds (no evidence of heparin), then platelet neutralization procedure will be performed at an additional charge.

If TT is ≥25.0 seconds, then reptilase time will be performed at an additional charge.

Clinical Information

Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) and intravascular coagulation and fibrinolysis (ICF), collectively termed DIC/ICF is a consumptive hemorrhagic and microthrombotic disorder that manifests as clinical bleeding or thrombosis. Conditions associated with DIC/ICF can include sepsis, trauma (eg, head injury, severe tissue injury), obstetric complications (eg, amniotic fluid embolism, abruptio placentae), malignancies, vascular disorders (eg, hemangiomas, aortic aneurysm), and immunologic disorders.


These disorders can cause formation of thrombin and fibrin intravascularly, which can result in widespread fibrin deposition contributing to thrombosis and organ failure or, conversely, can result in bleeding due to consumption of coagulation proteins and platelets. DIC/ICF is not a disease, rather it is a syndrome that is secondary to an underlying disorder.
