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.
