ID HPA XT
The perfect match
ID HPA XT is a fast and effective solution for molecular typing of 12 HPA systems, designed and manufactured by Grifols*.
Recently, DNA-based testing has proved to be an extremely effective technique that can provide advantages over current serology techniques.
Within the BLOODchip® ID Line, Grifols offers ID HPA XT, an innovative human platelet antigen (HPA) genotyping assay that detects 13 polymorphisms determining 12 HPA systems. The kit is based on Luminex Technology, resulting in a highly reliable and accurate system.
BLOODchip® ID is the fastest and most effective solution for ensuring the safest transfusion therapy for your patients.
- One multiplex PCR
- No filtration required
- Only 4 tubes to pipette
- < 4h overall time from DNA to result
- 30 min hands on time
- From 1 to 96 samples per run
- ID CORE XT and ID HPA XT can be performed in the same run
ID HPA XT main applications include, determining the presence/absence of platelet antigens in both patients and donors, performing large-scale donor typing for provision of antigen-negative platelets, helping to select compatible platelet donors for refractory or alloimmunized patients and complementing clinical history of alloimmune platelet disorders, such as foetal and neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (FNAIT), post-transfusion purpura and platelet transfusion refractoriness. The final goal is to provide better matched units to improve patient care.
|Human platelet antigens||Alleles assayed||Predicted phenotypes (antigens)|
|HPA-1||HPA1a, HPA1b||HPA-1a, HPA-1b|
|HPA-2||HPA2a, HPA2b||HPA-2a, HPA-2b|
|HPA-3||HPA3a, HPA3b||HPA-3a, HPA-3b|
|HPA-4||HPA4a, HPA4b||HPA-4a, HPA-4b|
|HPA-5||HPA5a, HPA5b||HPA-5a, HPA-5b|
|HPA-15||HPA15a, HPA15b||HPA-15a, HPA-15b|
The kit is offered in a 48 tests/kit size.
