CEU COURSES | ANTIBODY DETECTION AND IDENTIFICATION

Investigation of Broadly Reactive Antibodies (Release Date: April 22 2019) In this program, the steps taken in distinguishing the difference between warm autoantibodies, high incidence alloantibodies, multiple alloantibodies, and interfering therapeutic agents are discussed.  Multiple techniques useful in assisting in antibody identification beyond the initial panel results are presented, including: enzyme treatment, DTT treatment, adsorption techniques, and phenotype.

Antibody Detection & Antibody Identification (Release Date: 10/01/2009)
Pre-transfusion testing techniques are described for recipient and donor samples with an emphasis on antibody detection and identification. Additional details are provided related to screening cell dosage, the use of an auto control and the use of probability values in antibody identification.

Serological Techniques Used in Antibody Identification (Release Date: 10/01/2009)
Multiple techniques useful in assisting in antibody identification beyond the initial panel results and resolving ABO discrepancies are presented. These techniques include the use of: enhancement reagents, prewarming, neutralization, saline replacement, enzyme treatment and antibody titration.

Pitfalls of Antibody Identification (Release Date: 10/01/2009)
Resolutions to common technical problems encountered when performing antibody identification are presented. Case studies illustrate key points highlighted in the presentation.

Warm Autoantibodies (Release Date: 07/09/2015)
This course provides an overview of the serologic techniques used to detect alloantibodies when autoantibodies are present and provision of red blood cells for these types of challenging patient samples.
