Blood group testing
The Serafol AB0+D bedside test by sifin is used to quickly determine the blood type at the patient’s bed, greatly increasing the safety of the blood transfusion. The coloured test reagents reduce the risk of an incorrect reading, while the labelling fields on the bedside test guarantee the correct allocation of the test results.
Place one drop of isotonic saline solution on each reaction field and auto-control field.
Add one drop of the recipient’s blood to each field in the upper panel of the card and one drop of donor blood to each field in the lower panel of the card.
Stir each field with an applicator stick for approx. 30 seconds. The reagents must dissolve completely.
Gently rock the card back and forth for approx. 30 to 60 seconds, then check each field for agglutination.
Dry the reaction mixtures and cover with self-adhesive film before filling the card.
