|IRL||Molecular Testing (DNA Genotyping), Platelet Testing||Molecular Platelet Genotyping (HPA) – Patient||
Molecular determination of 11 allelic variants that determine common Human Platelet Antigens, using multiplex PCR and microarray analysis. Includes DNA extraction and purification.
|5-7 Business Days||2 EDTA (7 mL) tubes||Form BS 313|
|HLA, IRL||Platelet Refractory Panel, Platelet Testing||Platelet Antibody Detection||
The Capture-P Ready Screen Solid Phase System is designed to detect IgG- HPA and -HLA antibodies. The assay does NOT differentiate between HLA or HPA antibodies. The assay is not designed to detect complement components or antibodies of the IgM or IgA class.
|Depends upon request; See TAT description||3-7 mL EDTA (plasma) or serum tube (no gel separators). Sample must be received in the IRL no later than 30 hrs after collection. Shipped in a container maintaining temperature between 1C - 10C||Form BS 313|
