Description

The Rapid Platelet Function Assay - ASA (RPFA-ASA, Mutiplate ® Assay, VerifyNow P2Y12 Assay) is a quantitative test developed to aid in identifying platelet dysfunction due to aspirin therapy.

Timely identification of aspirin-resistant patients is clinically significant because it provides the opportunity to change or augment therapy before a vascular event occurs.

Rapid Platelet Function Assay is considered investigational/experimental to determine aspirin resistance, and therefore, non-covered because the safety and/or effectiveness of this service cannot be established by the available published peer-reviewed literature.
