Program Description: Antibody screens are generally repeated every three days in recently transfused or pregnant patients, given the risk of new antibody formation. In patients without recent transfusion or pregnancy, the interval between antibody screens can be extended and this is typically convenient for pre-operative patients distant from the hospital. However, the optimal time to extend expiration time in select patient populations is not known. This eCast will also discuss the timing of antibody development and evanescence, as they impact compatibility testing.
