DC-Lys is an in vitro diagnostic medical device (IVDMD) for professional use to perform the direct antiglobulin test. DC-Lys should be only used in E.M.® Technology (Erythrocytes Magnetized Technology) on fully automated machine QWALYS® in combinaison with associated devices.
This test shows the in vivo sensitization of the human red blood cells by some IgG anti-erythrocytes antibodies and/or by component C3d of the complement system.
The kit DC-Lys (DIAGAST Ref.: 79300) is consisting in:
- 8 microplates DC-Lys for 8 x 32 tests.
A test is constituted by a well of antiglobulin anti-IgG, by a well of antiglobulin anti-C3d and a well of negative control.
- The wells columns 1, 4, 7 and 10 are taken on in antiglobulin monoclonale anti-IgG from murine origin.
- The wells columns 2, 5, 8 and 11 are taken on in antiglobulin monoclonale anti-C3d from murine origin.
- The wells columns 3, 6, 9 and 12 correspond to the negative control.
Each microplate is individually covered with a hermetic protection film containing a dessicant sachet.
