The reagents will be used for performing the following immuno-hematological tests: - grouping abo-rh1, - rh-kel1 phenotyping, - rai screening, - newborn abo-rh1 grouping, - identification, - direct compatibility test in the laboratory, - direct antiglobulin test, - extended phenotyping.
In blood banks and clinical laboratories, pretransfusion compatibility assessments typically involve two types of tests: the antibody screen test and the direct antiglobulin test (DAT).
Direct antiglobulin test was done using LISS Coombs gel card; 50 [micro]L of the red cell suspension was added to the appropriate microtube and it was centrifuged for 10 minutes.
INTRODUCTION AND BRIEF HISTORY OF THE DIRECT ANTIGLOBULIN TEST
In a study, infants were recognized to be at risk of developing hemolytic disease secondary to ABO incompatibility, when they had a positive direct antiglobulin test.
Laboratory investigations were parasitologic (thick and thin blood smears), hematologic (differential blood count), and biochemical (haptoglobin, lactate dehydrogenase [LDH], C-reactive protein, potassium, and sodium levels and renal and liver function tests) examinations; screening for glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency; and immunohematologic examinations (direct and indirect antiglobulin test, including testing with enzyme-treated erythrocytes).
Blood group incompatibility with positive direct antiglobulin test, other known hemolytic disease (e.
Laboratory tests (increased free hemoglobin, increased lactate dehydrogenase, and decreased haptoglobin) revealed a direct antiglobulin test (DAT)negative hemolytic anemia.
A Turkish study concluded that reticulocyte count, the presence of a sibling with neonatal jaundice and a positive direct antiglobulin test were good predictors for the development of significant hyperbilirubinemia and a serum bilirubin levels of 4 mg/dL and 6 mg/dL at six hours of life are good predictors of severe hyperbilirubinemia.
The hallmark of this group of diseases is the positive result of the direct antiglobulin test (DAT), which detects a coating of immunoglobulin or components of complement on the RBC surface.
Blood grouping and direct antiglobulin test was performed in these patients.
The traditional method for the measurement of antenatal titrations is the indirect antiglobulin test (IAT) tube method, although this method has repeatedly demonstrated imprecision in its results (1, 2).
