    Q. Why is albumin the first protein to be detected in tests for renal failure?

    a. its molecular size is largest

    b. its molecular size is smallest

    c. it is very negatively charged

        I did not do research on this one.,… I went with what most peoples said on Indeed…So I chose Smallest…if its largest it will have hard time going thru the kidney filter

    @Nirali —-> When Both Factors r prolonged APTT and PT then its common factor, must be Factor 5
    common Pathway= 1,2,5 and 10
    For DIC everything is prolonged and you see + D Dimer, I have update the choice its shud be all prolonged…sorry abt that

    Thanks a lot for your reply..really Thank you for helping us..
    How about You see lots of eosinophil with a high LAP score, what do you do? I don’t know should they be counted?

    1. ifzal2013 Post author

      I think it shud be Grade according to Reaction
      There is a condition where there is Medication adverse effect and in that case you see Eoso with high LAP

    Hello , I need the answer of this question.
    Cryoprecipited AHF product was thawed/prepared at 10am, patient has X-Ray at 2pm ( takes about few hours) , what will you do with the product?

      1. Clarisse

        Hi Ifzal !
        Thank you so very much!!! ๐Ÿ‘I’m sure that it will be of great help to me and other candidates..ill just check the update regularly on our site group .. ๐Ÿ˜„

    1. tess

      With regard to croprecipitate, you have to discard it if after 4hours pooled . My answer to that question is give it before the Xray of the patient. That is begore 4 hours . That is one of the choices in the exam. Good luck!

        Hi Tess
        When did you take the certification?
        I’m gonna take it in a few weeks now.. I’m so nervous๐Ÿ˜ฐWill you give additional recall questions and advice ?? If you don’t mind..
        Thank you!

    2. tess

      Croprecipitate if thawed you can you use it within 6 hours if pooled within 4 hours. Remember this. Read the question carefully it makes difference as to time.

    So the question i remember from my ascp exam: 0.1 mL of serum diluted with 1.9 of water in order to resolve above assay range flag. The of this dilution 2.0 mL was taken and added 3 more mL of water and result came out as 120. What is the result that should be reported in the final report on this dilution? A. 600 b. 1200, c. 6000 or c. 12000

    Also…cortisol levels increase blood glucose (not decrease). All hormones increase glucose except insulin.

      Hi Lilian, congratulation an passing the exam. Can you suggest a lecture book and a study guide book that you used for clinical chemistry and hematology. Thank you

      1. Lilian

        Hi irina thanks. I did not buy any book because I could not afford I only used the YouTube video lectures and ppt lecture nots found on the internet for all my reading. Thank God I came across this website in my final week of preparation, I used the materials found in here and it really saved me. Good luck.

    To help my fellow students I’m selling my Success in clinical Lab science book on EBAY for less than listed prices. So, feel free to check it out. I recently took my exam an passed and I praise God for that! I had a lot of BBK questions and microbiology I would recommend to know these subjects the most.

  13. Teffy

    Took the ASCP exam today and I passed!The questions posted here were very helpful and your Micro notes were excellent.
    For reference: I am a recently graduated MLS student. To study I used my class notes in combination with Polansky cards and labce to see where I stood on test taking (as I studied I did single subject testing and only one adaptive mode test). Our school program was very intensive and I feel it prepared me well for the exam, but as you have mentioned it is what you remember that counts. The exam questions were very tricky, not a straight answer kind of question but more of a ruling out type question.
    I had several calculation questions compared to my classmate who had none. At-least two were on the units to be checked for an antigen (know frequencies), question on relative vs. absolute lymphopenia. It felt as thought most of my exam was focused on blood banking. One question on Anti-A1, one on baby with positive DAT,one on mom with negative screen,one Anti-i, discrepancies in ABO, high frequency AB and low Frequency, one weird panel on cord cells that was being diluted, different AB questions.
    I will try to give some questions tomorrow if I can remember. Anyways thank you for this website and much success to all! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Hi ,
    I am taking ASCPi (MT) , I have many questions from my frinds who pass this test and I am woundering am I gonna have similar to thire questions since I live here in US , and they live in Middel East

  15. Kafarel Delva

    I took the exam on 20th of September and I passed. This site was a huge help. You pretty have a general idea of everything, and not just know by heart but understand the concept. The questions I had weren’t straight to the point. The first 82 questions very hard after that the last 17 was straight forward like identify bilirubin crystals, corrected wbc calculation. If you have any questions, feel free

  16. aseil
