Initial Observations of Antibody Panel
- Look at the phase in which reactions are occurring. Reactions at immediate spin (IS) usually are not clinically significant. Reactions at AHG are clinically significant.
- Look at the strengths of reactions. Varying strengths of reactions could indicate dosage. In the example below, the heterozygous (Jka Jkb) cells react weaker with a 2+ reaction. The homozygous cells react stronger with a 3+ reaction.
- Varying strengths may also mean more than one antibody is present.
