Gel Test Canine Crossmatch
Dogs have many blood types on the surface of their red blood cells (DEA1, 3, 4, 5, 7, DAL…) With the absence of monoclonal antibodies for all of these blood groups (except for DEA 1), it is mandatory to perform a reliable Crossmatch test (XM) before any transfusion. Crossmatching aims to establish a serological compatibility between the recipient and the donor to detect the presence of alloantibodies.
Our canine XM Gel Test (major and/or minor) is based on an individual Gel Test microtube filled with a mixture of gel and specific canine Antiglobulin reagent that will detect the presence of immunoglobulins (IgG & IgM) and/or C3 components binding to the red blood cells surface. Our Gel Test XM Test will allow you to pick-up incompatibilities across all canine blood groups (DEA1, 3, 4, 5, 7, DAL…).
Reliable in case of low pcv (anemia) Thanks to the sensitivity of our specific monoclonal antibodies, even with a very low PCV (hematocrit) will allow you to obtain a reliable Feline blood typing result.
Thanks to our specific membrane technology, the agglutinated red blood cells (RBCs) will be retained at the bottom of the membrane whereas non agglutinated RBCs will continue to migrate to the top of the membrane.
