How to recognize and resolve reagentdependent reactivity: a review

Reagent-dependent reactivity can be described as agglutination of red blood cells (RBCs) in serologic testing that is not related to the interaction of RBC antigens and antibodies that the test system is intended to detect. In other words, reagent-dependent reactivity results in false-positive agglutination reactions in serologic testing. These false-positive reactions can cause confusion in antigen typing and RBC antibody detection and identification procedures, and may result in delays in

evidences by observing neighboring node activities. Further, the collected evidences are consolidated to provide input to the second stage. In the second stage, collected evidences are validated using the sequential probability ratio test to decide whether the neighbor node is Sybil or benign. The proposed method has been evaluated using the network simulator ns-2. Simulation results show that the proposed method is robust in detecting Sybil attacks with very low false positive and false negative rates.

Performance characteristics of two automated solid-phase red cell adherence systems for pretransfusion antibody screening:  a cautionary tale

samples run on the Galileo and samples tested by standard manual tube technique using low-ionic-strength saline enhancement showed a false-positive rate of 1.4 percent on the Galileo (defined as a positive screen with a negative panel). Testing using the Echo identified four cases of falsely negative antibody screens, (defined as a negative screen on a patient sample subsequently shown to be positive by the same method). In addition, we note a lack of reproducibility on the Echo, which emphasizes the

percent,mostly due to human errors. Error rates in D typing ranged from 0.7 to 5.7 percent, the most problematic being weak D phenotype interpretation. Although every sample was negative by the DAT, error rates due to false positive test results were determined to be 0.4 to 2.1 percent. Antibody screening errors were also found; however, errors steadily decreased from 4.2 percent in 2000 to 0.3 percent in 2004. Only 69.4 to 87.2 percent of laboratories performed antibody identification;however,correct

anti-D due to Rh immune globulin but missed one anti-Jka. ReACT missed one anti-D and one anti-Jkb. MTS-Gel detected one anti-I and one anti-H whereas ReACT detected two antiH but not anti-I. No false positive reactions were found by either method. Sensitivity based on this study for MTS-Gel is 93.3% and ReACT is 86.7%. Advantages for MTS-Gel included the small volume needed for testing, and the reaction was stable for 48 hours; for ReACT, there was less spin time and no special pipette was needed

Pitfalls in ultrasound imaging of the stomach and the intestines

; therefore, this study focuses mainly on false positive errors which usually result from a lack of knowledge of anatomical variants of the gastrointestinal tract structure. In the case of the stomach, rugae and muscle layer thickening towards the pylorus have been mentioned, which constitute variants of the structure of this organ examined when empty. Diagnostic pitfalls in the small intestine may include the dudenojejunal flexure (ligament of Treitz), the horizontal part of the duodenum and the

distributions. To examine the detection performance of the proposed method, experiments have been conducted on actual and polluted images, respectively. The experimental results have demonstrated that the recognition ratio of the intersection points by the proposed ridge line fitting-based method is as high as 100%, the false positive ratio is 0 and the matching accuracy is up to 100%. Compared with the results obtained using traditional methods, the proposed method detection results are characterized by

Interferon Gamma Release Assays in Patients with Respiratory Isolates of Non-Tuberculous Mycobacteria – a Preliminary Study

). The superiority of IGRAs over tuberculin skin test (TST) in LTBI diagnostic pathway, is related to its higher specificity, e.g. lack of false positive results in the populations vaccinated against M. tuberculosis and those infected with most of non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) (Demkow 2011; Kuś et al. 2011; Mancuso et al. 2012). Nevertheless, some NTM, such as Mycobacterium kansasii, Mycobacterium marinum and Mycobacterium szulgai share RD1 with M. tuberculosis and could induce false positive

Identifying D-positive donors using a second automated testing platform

estimated the number of cases of alloimmunization in women younger than 50 years likely to be prevented by the addition of Galileo testing. From May 2011 to May 2012, 910,220 donor samples were tested; 15,441 were first-time donors with concordant D– results. Five donors tested D– on the PK7300 and weak D+ on the Galileo; one was found to be a false positive on further testing. On manual testing, the other four donors had positive indirect antiglobulin test results with one to three of the
