Update on the use of RHD Genotyping in Serologic Weak D (presented 10/05/2017)
Instruction Level: Intermediate
Learning Objectives:
-Describe how serologic weak D reactivity can be explained by genetic variation in the RHD gene
-Recognize when RHD genotyping can be useful to resolve D typing discrepancies and to inform about risk of alloimmunization by transfusion or pregnancy
-Review the approach used by a major medical center blood bank to identify samples for RHD genotyping and the result of such testing
