Medicina Transfuziei Biosupply


Platelets represent a critical component of the body’s clotting function and are one of the most commonly transfused of all blood components. Correct determination of platelet type and the presence of antibody to platelet antigens as a bar to platelet transfusion, provides important information to clinicians and transfusion professionals. With the addition of platelet antibody and platelet typing assays to product portfolio, we continue our mission to provide the best-in-class products that will lead to transfusions that are safe, accessible and affordable.
Rad Control Standard
The RAD-CONTROL blood irradiation indicator serves to verify the irradiation of blood products. The intended use is for gamma or X-Ray blood irradiation with at least 25 gray. A RAD-CONTROL label is affixed to the blood product before blood irradiating takes place. The indicator will turn from RED to BLACK once irradiation has been carried out.
This change in color is reliable and self-explanatory! There are no evaluation uncertainties, only clear information of ‘not irradiated/irradiated’. RAD-CONTROL blood irradiation indicators are carefully produced and comprehensively tested in accordance with our ISO 13485 quality management system to avoid any risk in your processes.
Rad Control Barcode
After blood irradiation the RAD-CONTROL BARCODE irradiation indicator appears as a barcode. This globally unique indicator enables:
Electronic readability of the blood irradiation result.
Automation of the blood irradiation process.
Improvement and simplification of the entire process.
Additionally the word "IRRADIATED" appears in a second field to also show to users clearly that the irradiation was performed. The marking of labels or the manual entry of blood irradiation results is no longer necessary. After setting up the system blood bags can be distributed only if they have been identified and verification of blood irradiation has been confirmed..
This change in color is reliable and self-explanatory! There are no evaluation uncertainties, only clear information of ‘not irradiated/irradiated’. RAD-CONTROL BARCODE blood irradiation indicators are carefully produced and comprehensively tested in accordance with our ISO 13458 quality management system to avoid any risk in your processes.

The presence of pre-existing HLA antibodies in blood donors is associated with TRALI (acute transfusion-associated lung injury) and transfusion reactions TRALI type to recipients of blood products from sensitized donors. TRALI is a syndrome described as a spectrum of clinical symptoms that occur very fast (usually within 1-2 hours) after transfusion of blood products. Although it occurs in a small number of patients receiving blood products, remains the leading cause of transfusion-related mortality reported to the Food and Drug Administration.
Screening for HLA antibody screening is now available to the Blood Bank laboratory in a convenient kit called LIFECODES DonorScreen HLA. DonorScreen-HLA was specifically designed to detect these antibodies in blood donors, using the QuickStep tool for automatic processing of ELISA.

Patients with a low ABO or questionable pattern of isoagglutinins can be retiped with the RBC-Ready Gene ABO / ABO Subtype, to the lowest antigens. The flexible format of the RBC-Ready Gene allows the use of both kits in parallel or only for the subtype, depending on your requirements.


To clarify serologically weak D typing in patients and donors, you can use the RBC-Ready Gene CDE and RBC-ReadyGene D weak inno-train systems separately or in combination. The blurred samples are specially tested for categories D, partially D and weak D and, therefore, can be clearly characterized.


With the RBC-Ready Gene CDE system, a clear result of the RHCE C, c, E, e and CW alleles is obtained. in the case of a clear molecular typing for RHCE accompanied by a reaction low C, c, E or e serology, we recommend using the latest RBC-Ready Gene RHCE variants of the test system for clarification. They are too useful for analyzing abnormal serological typing, such as unanticipated RH antibodies. In addition, they can be used for donor / patient testing as well regarding various manifestations of modified RHCE.


Different hemolytic diseases, for example sickle cell anemia (siclemia) or thalassemia, but also the complex evolution of some diseases as a result of multiple operations due to accidents or chronic diseases, it requires permanent blood transfusions. As a result, the blood of the recipients is a difficult mixture blood group screening, especially the Kell, Kidd, Duffy and MNS blood groups. If other transfusions are needed, the molecular detection of the group Blood provides clear results because the amount of donor DNA in the transfused blood units does not influence the test. Also, RBC-Ready Gene confers safety in typing patients who have created allograft or auto-antibodies and / or has positive DAT at serological typing.


Samples from polytransfused patients or patients producing allu / auto-antibodies generally require unambiguous molecular clarification. The new RBC-Ready Gene system vERYfy offers a combined solution for parallel analysis of Rhesus, MNS, Kell, Kidd, Duffy and Dombrock blood groups.


In many cases, antisera for rare blood groups are not available or difficult to obtain. Occasionally, patients develop antibodies difficult to identify which acts against rare blood groups. With Ready Gene Rare ID, alleles of rare blood groups can be detected in a way clear and inexpensive.
