When red cells (RBCs) are treated with papain, one form of the U antigen, which we have named UPS (U papain-sensitive), is almost completely removed or denatured. A second form, UPR (U papain-resistant), remains unaltered on the treated RBCs. Tests on 42 examples of anti-U showed that two contained only anti-UPS, 19 contained only -UPR, and 21 contained(More)
The evaluation of two automated (AutoGrouper-16C) antibody detection techniques, designed for routine use is reported. Three channels on the instrument were modified for low-ionic-strength or enzyme methods. The incidence of antibody detection was 90.5 percent, and all antibodies that were not detected had titers of 4 or less and would be unlikely to cause(More)
