ABSTRACT

Many antibody identifications require testing with cells of rare or uncommon phenotypes. To expedite the resolution of these identifications, we developed a microcomputer database using Lotus 123TM to enter antigen phenotypes from our frozen cell inventory. Data is entered into a customized screen input form and automatically copied to the database. The use of an input form pro­tects the database from inadvertent errors made while entering data. The database can be searched for any combination of red cell phenotypes. When found, the selected cells are extracted to a predesigned worksheet. Panel worksheet forms are created with Allways™, a software program used in conjunction with Lotus 123™. Allways™ is specifically designed to generate quality print­outs with a laser printer. The program has many formatting features that simplify horizontal and vertical ruling for the worksheet. In addition, the program provides degrees of shading to highlight specific antigens or entire columns or rows of information. Once the worksheet template has been designed, it is automatically saved with the database file. More than one worksheet template can be stored in the database file. This program reduces the amount of time spent searching through records to find the necessary cells for testing. It also reduces potential error in hand copying antigen phenotypes to a worksheet. This application can also be used for HLA panels.
