Useful For

​Whn phenotyping is not possible due to recent transfusion or a positive DAT.

To help resolve the weak expression of blood group antigens, for example when two or more serological reagents give conflicting results.

When a partial or variant antigen is present leading to conflicting serological antibody investigations.

To provide antigen-negative and crossmatch-compatible blood to help prevent red cell alloimmunization.
