Product Description

The anti-globulin or Coombs' test is widely used to detect the presence of antibody in the diagnosis of autoimmune hemolytic anemia. Antibody alone or in the presence of complement injures the cell membrane permitting leakage of RBC material, allowing recognition by the reticuloendothelial cells, thereby leading to phagocytosis and destruction of RBC's. Anti-globulin reagent (Coombs' serum) is prepared by immunizing rabbits with canine IgG, IgM and C3 purified from normal

Application Notes

Feline anti-globulin reagent (Coombs') has been widely used for the diagnosis of autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) in a variety of species. Several disease entities resembling AIHA and immune-mediated hemolytic anemia have been recognized in the cat. Feline antiglobulin test can be used as a test to aid the diagnosis of AIHA and immune-mediated hemolytic anemia in the cat.

Usage Statement

Research Use Only (RUO). Ready for CE IVD labeling of clinical applications.

Key Applications

Immunoassays | Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia (AIHA) diagnosis

Formulation Details Lyophilized
Host Rabbit
Applications Immunoassays | Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia (AIHA) diagnosis
Pack Size 2 mL
Physical Appearance Lyophilized antiserum
Preparation Method Antibodies are produced in rabbits by immunization with feline immunoglobulins and formulated with selected beta globulins including the C3 component of complement. The resulting antiserum is heated at 56°C for 30 minutes to inactivate rabbit complement. Heteroagglutinins are absorbed with pooled normal feline red blood cells. The reagent is tested with normal and antibody-coated feline red blood cells to assure its specificity.
Presentation Lyophilized antiserum
Research Areas Autoimmune Diseases
Solubility Soluble in water
Species Reactivity Cat
Storage and Handling The lyophilized product has a minimum shelf life of five years from the manufacture date when stored at 2-8°C. After reconstitution; aliquot and keep frozen at or below -20°C for up to one year. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles. Discard the reagent when it appears turbid or otherwise visibly contaminated.
