Also known as: hereditary thrombophilia panel.
Molecular genetic testing refers to a wide variety of tests performed on blood and tissue to screen for genetic disorders. A thrombophilia panel specifically looks for variations in DNA that can predispose people to thromboembolism later in life. A thromboembolism is a blood clot that can pose risks to people later in life, such as leg pain or stroke.
All that’s required for the test is a basic blood draw, typically from the arm but sometimes from another area of the body. Then the blood sample is taken to a laboratory for testing. Sometimes a sample of bone marrow is required and can be obtained in a similar fashion.
