Real-Time PCR for RBC, ABO and HPA Genotyping
LinkSēq real-time PCR molecular antigen typing overcomes the major challenges of molecular typing by increasing laboratory productivity, reducing turnaround time, and predicting phenotypes for many antigens given the common variants for those antigens.
Fast workflow with little hands-on effort
Easy data analysis via SureTyper™ Blood
Accurate real-time PCR
Robust contamination protection
Easy integration with data management systems via XML export
Hands On: 10 min
Hands off: 70 min

ABO alleles encode the enzyme Glycosyltransferase. Many A subgroups involve a weakly expressed A antigen, which can cause discordant serological reactions in forward and reverse typing. Our ABO products offers a better solution to research these alleles by separating A1 from non-A1, B from B3, Bweak and Bel, and much more.
Building complete antigen profiles via serology for the 13 key blood group systems is challenging.
With the LinkSeq RBC and RH assays, you can genotype 13 key blood group systems plus Hemoglobin all in one run.
RhD, RhCE, MNS, Kell, Duffy, Kidd, Lutheran, Diego, Cartwright, Scianna, Dombrock, Colton, and Landsteiner-Wiener plus Hemoglobin n mutations S and C, and the normal A gene.
Human Platelet Antigens (HPA) are glycoproteins expressed on platelet membranes. Our HPA assays are designed to target both the a and b alleles for HPA-1 through HPA-11, and HPA-15.
