Molecular technology has transformed the practice of laboratory medicine and revolutionized patient care. Molecular Protocols in Transfusion Medicine is a much-needed reference for the transfusion laboratory. If you phenotype blood, perform prenatal serology, specialize in complex antibody investigations, or diagnose neonatal cytopenic disorders, this manual is a must for state-of-the-art analyses of blood Cited by: ISBN: OCLC Number: Description: xii, pages: illustrations ; 25 cm. Contents: Molecular Biology in Blood Transfusion --Introduction / H.G. Klein --Advances in Blood Grouping --The Molecular Biology Approach / M.E. Reid --Molecular Biology in Parentage Testing and Forensic Medicine / R.W. Allen --Towards a Universal Blood Group --Manipulating the. This essential methods manual for immunohematologists (or hematologists and immunohematologists) provides information on genes that encode antigens on red blood cells, platelets and neutrophils. The book begins by covering general concepts in molecular biology and specific protocols such as DNA preparation, PCR-RFLP and allele-specific PCR. Why read or submit to Transfusion Medicine? Accepts articles on transfusion medicine in its widest context, including blood transfusion practice, immunohaematology, immunogenetics, histocompatibility, medico-legal applications, and related molecular biology and biotechnology. Of relevance to practising clinicians who want practical answers Online Submission - to submit your manuscript click here.

Carter BloodCare has performed red cell genotype testing for 10 years. Initially we used this testing to phenotype blood donors to increase our “rare unit” inventory. Introduction. Blood transfusion (hemotherapy) is a therapeutic intervention and an important part of modern healthcare. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), transfusion is the process of transferring blood or blood products derived from a donor into the vasculature and subsequently the circulating blood of the recipient, carried out by inserting an intravenous needle or catheter Author: Maria Moschidou, Irene P Tzanetakou, Demetris Lamnisos, Eftychia Kontekaki, Zacharias Fasoulakis, Em.

Blood Transfusion is a bimonthly Journal founded in by the Italian Society of Transfusion Medicine and Immunohaematology (Società Italiana di Medicina Trasfusionale e Immunoematologia, SIMTI). It is the official journal of SIMTI, Italian Association of Haemophilia Centres (Associazione Italiana dei Centri Emofilia, AICE), Croatian Society of Transfusion Medicine (Hrvatsko Društvo za Transfuzijsku Medicinu, HDTM), Spanish Society of Blood Transfusion . Chemistry and Biochemistry of Oxygen Therapeutics: From Transfusion to Artificial Blood is an essential reference for clinicians, haematologists, medicinal chemists, biochemists, molecular biologists, biotechnologists and blood substitute researchers. 12 Recently Transfused Patients: Antigen Typing • “Best guess” of RBC phenotype is unreliable – Mixed field hemagglutination – The number of RBC components transfused – Time since last transfusion – Estimated blood volume of patient – Prevalence of antigen • DNA testing – Urine sediment, buccal smear, peripheral blood WBCs gave the same result, which was consistent with pre-. Autotransfusion is the reinfusion of the patient's blood by collecting the blood from the thorax or peritoneal cavity after washing and antibiotic administration. A massive blood transfusion is when 50% of the patient's blood volume is transfused in a 24‐hour period or when 50% is transfused at one time.
