ECLT provides an overall assessment of the fibrinolysis system by measuring the time for an in vitro clot to dissolve in the absence of the normal plasmin inhibitors. ECLT is useful in assessing the fibrinolytic system and monitoring patients on urokinase or streptokinase fibrinolytic therapy.

Specimen collection container is blue-top (3.2% sodium citrate) tube.
To avoid release of plaminogen activator, do not massage vein
vigorously, pump first excessively or leave tourniquet in place for a
prolonged period. Centrifuge within 30 minutes after collection to get
platelet-poor plasma and freeze on dry ice. Ship specimens frozen on
dry ice. Keep samples in a -60 to -80 degree C freezer if they cannot
be shipped promptly.
Prohibit exercise prior to drawing sample.
