Comparison of a manual hexadimethrine bromide-antiglobulin test with saline- and albumin-antiglobulin tests for pretransfusion testing.

Abstract

A prospective double-blind study compared a manual hexadimethrine bromide (Polybrene) antiglobulin antibody detection test (P-AHG) and crossmatch with the albumin-antiglobulin antibody detection test and saline-antiglobulin crossmatch routinely used in our laboratory.
