Description
Micro column test for typing of blood group antigens on red cells including red cells coated in vivo with antibodies and/or complement components

Cellbind Direct Type is a micro column test system in which sensitised red cells from a suspension are caught by a gel matrix in an enhancing high-density medium. Cellbind Direct Type is intended for use in typing of blood group antigens and reversed blood grouping of red cells including red cells coated in vivo with antibodies and/or complement components. Cellbind Direct Type is suitable for use in manual as well as (semi-) automated systems. The Cellbind Direct Type assay meets the requirements of the concerned standards and guidelines. Performance characteristics are mentioned in the release documents, which are supplied with the product upon request. The test is based on the immunofixation of sensitised red cells in a micro column containing a gel matrix. The cell suspension is added to the incubation compartment of the micro column, together with the blood grouping reagent or plasma to be tested. During the incubation phase antigen-positive red cells will bind the corresponding anti-red cell antibodies present in the reagent or plasma. Next, the cards are subjected to three phases of centrifugation. In the first phase the high-density medium will cause separation of the red cells from the reagent or plasma. In the second phase sensitised red cells will be agglutinated and caught on top of the gel matrix in the micro column, while in the third phase non-sensitised and very weakly sensitised red cells will move towards the bottom of the micro column. The inclusion of positive and negative controls with each series of blood group determinations is strongly recommended
