Biotestcell® Reagent Red Blood Cells are human red blood cells used for ABO testing, antibody screening, and antibody identification.
Biotestcell A1 & B and Biotestcell A2 are used for the detection of antibodies to A and B antibodies in test serum or plasma. They have the following antigen combinations:
||A1 Rh negative (D negative) (ccddee)
||B Rh negative (D negative) (ccddee)
||A2 Rh negative (D negative) (ccddee)
Biotestcell-1&2 and Biotestcell-3 are used for the detection of unexpected red blood cell antibodies. Biotestcell-I8, Biotestcell-I11 and Biotestcell-I11 Plus are used for the identification of unexpected red blood cell antibodies. These products may be used on either TANGO™ optimo or in tube testing.
