SHELF LIFE: The maximum allowable storage time for a blood component held under acceptable temperature and conditions […]

Reverse blood grouping / Serum Grouping

Reverse Blood Grouping

Reverse blood grouping is a procedure to confirm ABO blood group based on the presence or absence of anti-A and anti-B in serum using known A and B red cells. It is cross check for forward typing. Performing both forward and reverse grouping provides a check for accuracy. Because of the lack of synthesized immunoglobulins, anti-A and Anti-B in newborns and very young infants, this procedure is not performed on infants below 4 months of […]

Minor Cross Match

Minor Cross Matching

In transfusion medicine, cross–matching or crossmatching (part of series of steps in blood compatibility tests) is testing before a blood transfusion to determine if the donor’s blood is compatible with the blood of an intended recipient. Why to Get Cross matching : Crossmatching is a test used to check for harmful interactions between your blood and specific donor blood or organs. It can help your doctor predict how your body will react to those donor materials. Cross matching plays important role to detect: Most […]

Crossmatching

In transfusion medicine, cross–matching or crossmatching (part of series of steps in blood compatibility tests) is testing before a blood transfusion to determine if the donor’s blood is compatible with the blood of an intended recipient. Purpose of cross-matching (Indication): The primary purpose of the crossmatch is to prevent a transfusion reaction. Crossmatch is done before the major surgery. Crossmatch is also done before operation where there is usually no need for blood, e.g. hysterectomy, and cholecystectomy. packed RBCs transfusion: Anemia […]
