Rule-Out Procedure Summary Guidelines

These guidelines should be followed when performing initial rule-out procedures:

  • Only cells that did NOT react can be used to rule-out.
  • For antibodies that exhibit dosage, homozygous cells are preferred for rule-out.
  • Rule-out is not free of error and should be evaluated in the context of other data, such as the phase of testing.
