Transfusions are made with ABO and RhD and compatible blood. In certain cases, Rh phenotypes and K status are also taken into account. Other blood group antigens are generally not considered. However, when a clinically significant antibody is present, appropriate antigen-negative blood should be used. For such cases, the rapid availability of fully typed donor blood is of great advantage. The ID-System facilitates complete antigen profiling.
In ID-Cards ID-Antigen Profile III, the first 2 microtubes contain neutral gel and the last 4 contain gel with polyspecific anti-human globulin (AHG). The corresponding antibodies (ID-test sera, specially adapted for the ID-System) are added after the red cell suspension (in ID-Diluent 2).
