Description

Presentation

Horses have 7 main blood group systems on the surface of their red blood cells (A, C, D, K, P, Q, U) with greater than 30 red blood cells factors. With the absence of monoclonal antibodies for all of these blood groups (except for Ca), 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.

Neonatal Isoerythrolysis (NI) is a potentially fatal condition in new born foals that results from an incompatibility of blood types between the mare and the foal. It is mandatory to perform a reliable crossmatch at birth using umbilical cord blood and serum/plasma from the mare to avoid foal neonatal isoerythrolysis.

Our technology

Our equine crossmatch Gel Test (major and/or minor) is based on an individual Gel Test microtube filled with a mixture of gel and specific Equine 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 pickup incompatibilities across all equine blood group system (A, C, D, K, P, Q, U).
