Immunohematology

Immunohematology referred to be blood banking. This is the laboratory medicine dealing up with preparing blood components, blood for appropriate selection and transfusion and also components that are compatible for transfusion which is helpful in case of severe blood loss or low blood levels. If the selection and compatibility fail this may directs to harm the kidneys, lungs and might be life threating. Transfusion can be recommended in case of illness, burns, cancer, injury. Individuals get immunized when there are previous transfusions of blood or in case of pregnancy. Red blood cells contain antigens and protein markers on their surfaces, if recipient or donors red blood cells doesn’t contain this antigen the antigen lacking individual will lead to form antibodies which destroys the red blood cells.so what blood banks screens, typing and cross matching are carried out for blood and its components before the transfusions.

If immune system of recipient attacks the donor red blood cells this state know to be haemolytic reaction. sometimes hives and itching can also be observed.

  • Transfusion related acute lung injury (TRALI). 
  • Acute kidney failure.
  • Antibody screening.
  • Gel testing.
  • Pretransfusion testing module.
  • Rh-sensitization.
