Recipients red blood cell (RBC) phenotyping using serologic techniques, within 3 months of a transfusion, is considered unreliable. We conducted in vitro experiments to determine how long recipients RBC phenotyping results would be compromised. In vitro models were created to mimic in vivo posttransfusion ratios of "transfused" RBCs with either a single or… CONTINUE READING
