If this occurs, the specimen should be retested by a method with mechanical or electromechanical clot detection. • Hemolysis. After centrifugation, each specimen should be observed for hemolysis. Hemolysis may be either an in vitro or in vivo phenomenon. In vitro hemolysis indicates a problem with specimen collection or handling, and the specimen should not be used because of possible activation of clotting factors [1]. The in vitro nature of the hemolysis may be inferred if other types of specimens from the same patient do not show visible hemolysis.

Coagulation testing may be informative, even though the specimen shows visible hemolysis. Communication with the ordering clinician may be useful for determining whether to proceed with testing. If the level of hemolysis interferes with optical clot detection, then mechanical or electromechanical clot detection must be employed to obtain valid results. 30 2 Collection of Coagulation Specimens • Incorrect anticoagulant. The specimen type must be verified at the time of receipt in the laboratory.
