Reagents, Immunohematology, Antibody Detection/Identification, Enhancement Media, Enzyme
Definition : Immunohematology reagents that consist of proteolytic enzymes that act as enhancing media in antigen-antibody reactions that occur in alloantibody detection assays. These enzymes typically act by removing sialic acid from the red cell membrane thus diminishing its negative charge. Enhancement media enzymes include trypsin, papain, ficin, and bromelain T.
