TEST DETAILS
Reference interval:
0.7-6.7%

CPT code(s):
85055
Note: The billing party has sole responsibility for CPT coding.  Any questions regarding coding should be directed to the payer being billed.  The CPT codes provided by GML are based on AMA guidelines and are for informational purposes only.
Test includes:
Percentage of IPF (immature platelet fraction) newly released from the bone marrow
Methodology:
Electronic resistance detection enhancd by hydrodynamic focusing and flow cytometry
Synonyms:
Reticulated platelets; immature platelets
IPFB
Clinical significance:
IPF reflects the rate of thrombopoiesis. IPF can help determine if a decreased platelet count is due to low production(decreased IPF) or increased destruction(increased IPF). The IPF can also help predict platelet recovery following peripheral blood HPC transplant. A persistently low IPF would suggest failure of thrombopoietic recovery.
