Euglobulin lysis time

Overview Risks Results
Alternative Names:
Euglobulin clot lysis; Fibrinolysis/euglobulin lysis
Normal Values:
A normal value will range from 90 minutes to 6 hours. Euglobulin clot lysis is normally complete within 2 to 4 hours.
What abnormal results mean:
In primary fibrinolysis (for example, caused by streptokinase administration, cancer of the prostate, shock), the euglobulin lysis time is shorter than normal.

In DIC, it is usually normal, but if all the plasmin has been consumed, the time may be prolonged.
Additional conditions under which the test may be performed:
