In the present study, we demonstrate the genotyping accuracy of a quadruplex high-resolution amplicon-melting assay for mutations in F55 [coagulation factor V (proaccelerin, labile factor)] (1691G>A), F2 [coagulation factor II (thrombin)] (20210G>A), and MTHFR (1298A>C and 677C>T) genes.

While most clotting factors are stable in thawed plasma, some factors including V and VIII (termed labile factors) degrade over time and this degradation accelerates while plasma is stored in the liquid state.
