Reagents for the detection of IgG antibodies on human red cells or the detection of red cell antibodies in human serum
Monospecific anti-human IgG is prepared by immunising goats with purified Fc fragments of human IgG. For reasons of a visible control on the addition of the monospecific anti-human IgG during the test this product is also supplied as a green coloured reagent. These reagents meet the requirements of the concerned standards and guidelines. Performance characteristics are mentioned in the release documents, which are supplied with the products upon request. The principle of the test is the agglutination technique. These reagents can be used in direct antiglobulin test (DAT), for antibody detection and identification and for compatibility testing (crossmatch) in the indirect antiglobulin test (IAT). The inclusion of a positive control with each series of tests is strongly recommended.
