What is Factor-V?
The Factor V test is performed to know the levels of Coagulation Factor V and determine any increase or decrease in its levels in the blood. The test is usually performed along with tests to measure levels of all the coagulation factors in the blood. These coagulation factors determine whether or not the blood clots normally, and unnatural levels indicate abnormalities in blood clotting.
