The Need

Thrombophilia is defined as an increased risk or tendency to develop blood clots (thrombi) as a consequence of predisposing factors that may be inherited or acquired.1-3

A thrombus may form in either the venous or arterial vascular system. Venous thrombophilia is usually related to an abnormality of the coagulation system and may result in deep venous thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE).3

Research shows that venous thromboembolism is a complex pathology that is reliant upon the interaction of both acquired and genetic factors.4 The most commonly associated genetic mutations for inherited thrombophilia are mutations in the genes for Factor V Leiden and Factor II (prothrombin).3-5

The Solution

Xpert® FII & FV is a qualitative genotyping test for the rapid detection of Factor II (FII) and Factor V (FV) alleles. Performed on the Cepheid GeneXpert System, the test is intended to provide rapid results for Factor II c.*97G>A (G20210A) and Factor V Leiden c.1601G>A (G1691A or R506Q) mutations as an aid in the diagnosis of suspected thrombophilia.
