ABSTRACT

Plasma converted to serum by the addition of bovine thrombin prior to compatibility testing agglutinated all donor red cells. This finding prompted an investigation of bovine thrombin-associated incompatibility that showed that (1) thrombin derived from bovine plasma contains IgG antibodies directed against all human red cells, and (2) excess (> 50 units/mL) bovine thrombin used for conversion of plasma to serum may cause hemagglutination and erroneous serologic test results because of the presence of heteroagglutinins.
