Fetal Cell Detection Kit
The FCD Kit provides an accurate and cost-effective solution for the detection and quantification of fetal red cells in a maternal blood sample (Kleihauer test). Using this test, fetal red cells appear bright red, whereas adult red cells and leucocytes appear pale pink (“ghosts”) and grey/blue, respectively. Full instructions are enclosed with the kit, which contains 3 x 100ml eluting and counterstaining reagents in ‘Ready to Pour’ bottles. The method requires the preparation of a thin blood film, followed by drying, fixing, eluting and counterstaining. Eluting and counterstaining can be completed in 30 seconds and 2 minutes respectively, presenting a protocol which is simple and rapid, with a well-defined end result.
