Dithiothreitol treatment of red blood cells

been excluded in other tests. Quality Control When performing treatment to destroy RBC antigens, K+ RBCs should be DTT-treated with each test batch. The treated and untreated K+ RBCs are then tested with anti-K. The treated RBCs should be nonreactive; otherwise, the DTT treatment was not adequate. Other antigens of the Kell system can also serve as controls.1 If dispersal of spontaneous agglutination is being performed, test the treated RBCs using 6 percent albumin. No agglutination should be

Distribution of blood groups in the Iranian general population

We report the first study of antigen and phenotype prevalence within various blood group systems in the Iranian general population. In this retrospective study, samples from 3475 individuals referred to the Immunohematology Reference Laboratory of the Iranian Blood Transfusion Organization, Tehran, Iran, for paternity testing from 1998 to 2008 were additionally tested for red blood cell (RBC) antigens in the Rh, Kell, Kidd, Duffy, MNS, Lutheran, P1PK, and Xg blood group systems. The antigen

classroom learning. Consequent areas of challenge within traditional academic domains, combined with their exceptional ability being rarely recognised or valued in schools, contribute to gifted visual-spatial learners being an “invisible group” (Gohm, Humphreys & Yao, 1998; Lubinski & Kell, 2013; Mahoney & Seeley, 1982; Seeley, 1987, 2003; Silverman, 1998; von Karolyi, 2013). These findings led to the development of a primary research aim to describe these differences and explore

Red blood cell phenotype prevalence in blood donors who self-identify as Hispanic

populations. We performed a retrospective review of all serologic and molecular typing from donors who self-reported as Hispanic. The phenotype prevalence was reported and compared with rates from other racial/ethnic groups. A total of 1127 donors who selfidentified as Hispanic were screened by serologic methods for Rh and Kell antigens, and 326 were subsequently selected for molecular typing. The most prevalent probable Rh phenotypes were R1r (26.6%), R1R2 (21.5%), and R1R1 (20.7%); rr was found in 7.8
