HLA antibody diagnostics: SeraScreen FCT microtest plates
with deep frozen HLA-ABC typed lymphocytes
The microlymphocyte toxicity test (MLCT) is a procedure which has been used for many years in HLA antibody diagnostics. Herein, anti-HLA antibodies from the patient's serum (if available) react with the corresponding membrane bound antigens of the human lymphocytes which are fixed on the microtest plate.
Determining HLA antibodies is required in the preparation and progress monitoring of solid organ transplants. HLA class I antibodies can also influence the progression of thrombocyte transfusions.
Our SeraScreen microtest plates contain ready to use pre-dripped peripheral lymphocytes from various donors to detect HLA antibodies. The plates are supplied with rabbit complement.
