Interpretive

Critical Range:Less than 10%
Reference Range:70-130%
Therapeutic Range:A chromogenic factor 10 level of approximately 20 to 40 percent inversely correlates with an INR of 2 to 3 for patients receiving warfarin. Chromogenic factor 10 levels below 20 percent indicate an INR greater than 3, and levels above 40 percent indicate an INR less than 2.
Use:This test may be used to monitor warfarin therapy for patients with lupus anticoagulants.
