Test erythrocytes for the detection of red cell antibodies.
Biotestcell™-P consists of test erythrocytes with polyvalent antigens from three 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, Lua, 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™-P3 is 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™-P3 is suspended in modified Alsevers solution in a concentration of approx. 3% and can be used immediately following careful resuspension.
Biotestcell™-P is used for the detection of irregular antibodies in tube tests or in the Solidscreen II solid phase test and is suitable for all routine testing purposes.
