Brief Answer: Are you sure its IX test or IQ test Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for writing to health care magic. If you are sure it is ix test then it is factor ix assay to rule out hemophilia b. This is a clotting disorder. Tests could have been done if she had a wound and it didn't clot soon. Let me know the full name of the test to help you further. Regards Dr Arun
