Immunohematology Diagnostic Products

Micronics also is advancing manually-operated, non-instrumented, point of collection immunohematology assays. These tests make it possible to rapidly screen blood types. 
The ABORhCard is a fully-integrated, closed system, sample-to-result test being developed to provide both ABO and Rh blood type from a fingerstick blood sample. The test consists of a disposable, credit card sized device that contains anti-A, anti-B and anti-D antibodies printed into discrete microfluidic channels. A tube of buffer is included in the packaging for antibody re-hydration. Once the blood sample is applied, the test is performed with visible results in approximately 2 minutes. It is FDA 510(k) cleared for educational and informational purposes. It is not for use for blood bank processing of blood products, for determining RHD status for the purpose of administration of Rh immunoglobulin or for screening purposes prior to transfusion.
