Reagents, Immunohematology, Antibody Detection/Identification, Two Cell Screening
Definition : Immunohematology reagents available as a two-vial set (i.e., two-cell test) that are used for detection of alloantibodies to red cell antigens. These reagents are group O red blood cells, either from a single source when used in patient testing or from pooled sources when used in donor testing. Red blood cells used for screening must express the antigens associated with the most clinically relevant antibodies, such as those related to the Rh (e.g., C, D, E), Kell, Duffy, and Kidd blood groups.
