Coagulation is when your blood clots and becomes solid. 

This page is about our work to look at people's blood and control when it clots.

Who we are

The laboratory is also a regional reference centre for specialist investigations in the diagnosis and monitoring of haemostatic and thrombotic conditions such as Haemophilia and Lupus.

The laboratory works closely with the Roald Dahl Haemostasis and Thrombosis Centre (RDHT) situated on the Royal Liverpool site and provides the International Normalised Ratio test (INR) for the monitoring of Warfarin therapy.

Testing is also offered for other anticoagulant treatments such as Heparin and Fragmin as well as clotting factor tests required for the support of Haemophiliac patients.
