  1. Eagle Eye

    CAP TRM.30450

    The daily QC testing that is being performed with the Ortho Confidence QC satisfies the requirement for COM.30450, "New Reagent Lot Confirmation of Acceptability" as long as the acceptability criteria is defined and the outcome of the results are recorded followed by supervisory review. This is the catch , you need to define what is acceptable result and have supervisory review.

    neonatal transfusion

    1-For neonate for example his blood group AB and mother A or B when he needs RBCs as mother blood group must we wash this unit to remove plasma from it or not and why ? We use O Neg, <7 days, CMV-, leukocyte reduced, Irradiated unit but we only use it up to 48 hrs post irrdaitaion. (Base don internal study to show that after 48 hrs the amount of potassium is significantly high which can adversely affect particularly low birth weight premie) 2-For neonate which is better many aliqouts from one donor (the same RBCs unit ) or different aliqouts from fresh RBCs units ? In our case it will be different donor as we do not have irrdiator. Please see answer 1. 3-For neonate which is better many thawed plasma from one donor ( the same plasma unit ) or FFP units from different donors ? We use only fresh frozen plasma so it will be only 24 hrs from thawing. Our blood supplier gives in small aliquots so we may end up using same donor.

    We run our old confidence and new confidence in parallel on the day of expiration date of current lot. (same for ALBA Q).

    CAP TRM.30450

    Do you do lot to lot for QC kit? Actually parallel testing for QC, eg. ALBA Q, Confidence QC kit?

    NAD but positive Cross-match

    Was elution done? Anti-c may be IgM! (we do see this when reverse cells giving discrepancy due to (mostly) cells being M+/Lea+/Leb+ , some time c+.

    Gel testing case

    This is a case we encountered while back. Patient RH neg and antibody screen negative. No Rhogam given this pregnancy. at 26 week specimen shows 2+ to 3+ anti-D and ficin panel shows anti-E (heterozygous cells enhanced 3+ with ficin). Tube screen (LISS enhancement) negative. Repeat specimen after two weeks same strength with gel and tube week positive at AHG phase with 30 mins incubation. It looks like allo but strength is same after two week and too many questions here?????

    FDA reportable events

    can some one post a link or form for all users here? there are two forms right? correct me if i am wrong...BPDR and adverse event? Thanks
  11. We do not have vision but we have been using antigen typing cards ...for many years. It is very simple and tech likes it and less human steps less errors. We require our techs to cut the segments instead of using segment devise to make sure we have enough cells/packed cells to run test.

    Gel and tube discrepancy in antibody screen

    Same here. I run one Positive and one negative for all tests.

    Validation/Correlation help needed!

    If you use a diluted 3% panel for routine gel testing and want to validate it's performance/stability for 1 week...How many days or specimens would be required? Please check manufacturer package insert. I know Ortho insert is 24 hrs. If you are extending days against package insert, you should validate with all kind of specimens and include worst cases. And definetly, you should run every day and in parallel with reagent prepared per package insert. Eg. you can run X number of specimens (Pos and Neg) with freshly diluted cells (up to 24 hrs expiration) and diluted cells you are trying to validate. Make sure to document reaction strength and any missed reaction. I would try to make sure there is no variability in procedure. (tech to tech variation).
