INR Testing

INR, which stands for International Normalized Ratio, is a standardized measure utilized to assess the clotting function of blood. This testing method is particularly crucial for individuals prescribed anticoagulant medications like warfarin.

If you are on warfarin medication, you will likely be accustomed to undergoing routine blood tests to ensure you are receiving the appropriate dosage. These tests are referred to as International Normalized Ratio (INR) assessments, which evaluate your blood's clotting time. Additionally, there is a convenient pharmacy-based program called the Community Pharmacy Anti-Coagulation Management Service (CPAMS) accessible to you.

Through this service, rather than having to visit a laboratory for each test, your certified Buchanans Pharmacists measure your INR levels by extracting a small blood sample from a finger prick.
