Reagents PK Blood Grouping and Phenotyping Reagents

The PK Blood Grouping Reagents are intended for the determination of ABO blood group, Rh and Kell phenotypes in blood donors using Beckman Coulter PK Systems.

The Anti-A, Anti-B and Anti-A,B reagents are used in the red blood cell determination of the ABO blood group. They are used to determine the absence or presence of erythrocytic antigens A and/or B on the surface of human red blood cells.

The Anti-D reagents: Anti-D, Anti-D (PK1) and Anti-D (PK2) are used to determine the Rh type, to detect the presence of the D (Rh) antigen on the surface of human red blood cells. The Anti-C, Anti-E, Anti-c̄, Anti-ē and Anti-K are used for Rh-Kell phenotyping of human red blood cells. These reagents detect the presence of antigens C, E, c̄, ē and K on the surface of red blood cells.

The PK Control is devoid of antibody activity and should be tested in parallel with the PK System Blood Grouping and Phenotyping reagents to differentiate between specific and non-specific agglutination.

PK Blood Grouping and Phenotyping Reagents

  • Standardized operating parameters
    • Ready-to-use, barcoded reagent vials
    • Ready-to-use barcoded diluent bottles
  • Large lot size minimizes hands-on receipt testing process
  • Test loading capacity of 680 tests/vial

Sample type, age and storage conditions

Sample Sample Expiration Storage Condition
EDTA 5-day sample age 2-8°C

Reagents PK Reagent Red Blood Cells

PK System Reagent Red Blood Cells (A1 and B) are intended for the determination of the reverse or plasma group on Beckman Coulter PK Systems.

The determination of an ABO blood group is defined by demonstrating the presence or absence of antigens A and/or B on the surface of human red blood cells and detecting the presence or absence of Anti-A and/or Anti-B antibodies in the plasma. The red blood cell antigens are identified using the Beckman Coulter PK System blood grouping reagents. Anti-A, Anti-B and Anti-A,B (red blood cell or forward group). The PK System Reagent Cells A1 and B (plasma or reverse group) confirm the red blood cell group by verifying the presence of the corresponding antibodies in the plasma by using known red blood cells.
