Test erythrocytes for the detection of red cell antibodies.
Biotestcell™®-P1 and Biotestcell™®-P2 are test erythrocytes with polyvalent antigens from two separate donors filled individually for the detection of red cell antibodies. The test cells have the following antigens: D, C, Cw, E, c, e, K, k, Kpb, Fya, Fyb, Lub, Jka, Jkb, Jsb, M, N, S, s, Lea, Leb, P1, Xga, Coa. The precise antigen profile of a batch is shown on a data sheet enclosed in the pack. Biotestcell™®-P1, -P2 are also suitable for preparation with enzymes (papain, ficin, bromelin, trypsin etc.) or with supplements (albumin, LISS). The usable life of test erythrocytes treated with enzymes can be found in the user instructions for the enzyme used. Biotestcell™®-P1, -P2 are suspended in modified Alsevers solution in a concentration of approximately 3% and can be used immediately following careful resuspension.
Biotestcell™®-P1 and Biotestcell™®-P2 are used for the detection of irregular antibodies in tube tests or in the Solidscreen II solid phase test and are suitable for all routine testing purposes.
