The Antibody Screen detects atypical IgG antibodies prior to transfusion or during pregnancy. The technique is designed specifically to detect IgG antibodies, though on occasion, some IgM antibodies may also be detected. Antibodies detected by the antibody screen will be subsequently identified, and a titer performed if the antibody identified is considered to be clinically significant during pregnancy.
Red cell antibody screening. Note: Identification of antibody(ies) and titer of clinically significant antibody(ies) will be automatically performed at an additional charge if the antibody screen is positive.
