Thrombin is an enzyme produced in the plasma of the blood. The enzyme plays an important role in blood clotting, a biological process that helps stop excess bleeding after an injury. Thrombin facilitates clotting by turning fibrogen, a clotting factor, into fibrin. The thrombin time test reveals the time taken by thrombin to convert fibrogen into fibrin.

The test is generally used to detect blood clotting abnormalities in an individual. While low blood clotting is linked to excess bleeding, excessive blood clotting increases the risk of heart attack and stroke. The thrombin time panel offered by Apollo 24|7 can help you assess your risk of blood clotting issues accurately.


Symptoms of a blood clotting disorder can vary depending on the severity and type of the condition.

However, some of the common symptoms may include:

  • Unexplained and excessive bleeding
  • Formation of hematomas or bruises without any apparent injury
  • Heavy menstrual periods
  • Frequent nosebleeds
  • Blood in urine or stool
  • Prolonged bleeding after injuries or surgery
  • Pain or swelling in the joints

Test Procedure

The thrombin-time test requires a small sample of blood for analysis. A healthcare professional will clean the area from where the sample is to be taken and then apply a tourniquet above it to make the vein more visible. Next, they will insert a needle into the vein and collect the required amount of blood in a sterile tube. After collection, the needle will be removed, and slight pressure will be applied to the puncture site to stop bleeding.

At the lab, the collected sample will be analysed to monitor the clotting time of the blood. Normal clotting time ranges between 12 to 14 seconds. However, if the clotting time exceeds this range, it may indicate a blood clotting disorder in the patient or there are some abnormalities.


In case a patient receives a positive thrombin-time test result, the healthcare provider will likely recommend further testing to identify the underlying cause of the condition. Depending on the severity and type of the disorder, the treatment plan will involve medications, surgeries, or lifestyle changes.

Therefore, early diagnosis and prompt treatment can help prevent serious complications arising from a blood clotting disorder. Hence, it is always suggested to have the condition diagnosed as early as possible.
