Test ID VWD8B von Willebrand Disease 2N (Subtype Normandy), Plasma

Additional Testing Requirements

VWAG / von Willebrand Factor Antigen, Plasma; VWACT / von Willebrand Factor Activity, Plasma; and F8A / Coagulation Factor VIII Activity Assay, Plasma are recommended to supplement results of this test.

Necessary Information

If performed at another laboratory, forward the results of the following tests with the specimen:

-von Willebrand factor antigen

-VWF activity (ristocetin cofactor, latex immunoassay etc)

-Factor VIII activity


These results aid in the interpretation of this test.

Specimen Required

Specimen Type: Platelet-poor plasma

Collection Container/Tube: Light-blue top (3.2% sodium citrate)

Submission Container/Tube: Plastic vial

Specimen Volume: 1 mL

Collection Instructions:

1. For complete instructions, see Coagulation Guidelines for Specimen Handling and Processing

2. Centrifuge, transfer all plasma into a vial, and centrifuge plasma again.

3. Aliquot plasma into a separate tube leaving 0.25 mL in the bottom of the centrifuged vial.

4. Freeze plasma immediately (no longer than 4 hours after collection) at -20° C or, ideally, less than or equal to -40° C.

Additional Information:

1. Double-centrifuged specimen is critical for accurate results as platelet contamination may cause spurious results.

2. Each coagulation assay requested should have its own vial.


If not ordering electronically, complete, print, and send a Coagulation Test Request (T753) with the specimen.

Useful For

Diagnosing von Willebrand disease (VWD) type 2N


Evaluating patients diagnosed with mild-to-moderate hemophilia A with an autosomal inheritance pattern


Evaluating hemophilia A patients with a shortened survival of infused factor VIII (FVIII) (not caused by a specific FVIII inhibitor)


Evaluating female patients with low FVIII activity and no prior family history of hemophilia A


Evaluating patients with Type 1 or Types 2A, 2B, or 2M VWD with FVIII activity discordantly lower than the von Willebrand factor antigen level
