  1. Hello, My facility is trying to determine whether or not it is necessary to perform weak D testing on Rh negative cord bloods (Rh performed in gel). As far back as our LIS can go, there has never been a weak D identified for a cord blood that originally tested as Rh negative in gel. I am unsure of how to interpret TRM.40780 "Maternal RhIG candidacy assessment must include the identification of weak-D phenotype newborns". I know there are previous threads on this topic, but most are quite old. Currently, do you perform this testing at your facility? Any input is appreciated. T
  2. Hello! Does anyone have a trick for creating a "fake" rouleaux specimen for students' learning purposes? Thanks in advance!
  3. Thank you so much for the powerpoint! And for the kind words. If you still have your t-shirt, you should definitely wear it! I would've been excited over that too!
  4. Good morning! This is probably a very dumb question and I'm sure I should know the answer from school. On Ortho antigrams (maybe all brands? Our facility only uses Ortho so that's what I know), what does "+s" mean for the P antigen? We consider it positive, but what is the s?? A student asked me today, and I couldn't give her an answer. Thanks in advance!
  5. Would anyone be willing to share their SOP's for "tubing" blood products? I am trying to get this started at my facility (even though it seems like everyone else has been doing it for years!) and am already getting lots of questions. I figure being able to explain what others do might help! Thank you in advance! Edit: we do not have the capability of "secure send" or scanning units/badges with our tube system
