From Lissette, UCLA: We requested our hematology specimens to be sent with a warm pack for CBC/DIFF. Is it recommended to keep the sodium citrate tubes for coagulation testing on warm packs as well for patients with cold agglutinin? Is there a recommended method to workup these specimens for coagulation testing?

Hemostasis laboratories prepare platelet poor plasma (PPP ), plasma with a platelet count below 10,000/uL for clot-based procedures. The CAP doesn't specify how the laboratory validates their specimens to ensure they are PPP. Please summarize your protocol for our participants. Thank you.
