Immucor’s Pak Lx™ product is a Luminex® based assay designed to detect and differentiatie between IgG antibodies to Human Platelet Antigen (HPA-1, HPA-2, HPA-3, HPA-4, HPA-5, and GPIV) and Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) Class I in human serum. Data analysis is performed using the MATCH IT! Platelet Antibody Software.
Pak Lx provides the following benefits to your laboratory for platelet testing:
- Allows for the selection of antigen negative or HLA matched platelets for transfusion
- Eliminates the need for donor platelets for the assay as only serum from the patient is tested
- You do not need to find your own platelet source which saves time, money and resources
- Helps to ensure consistent test results as the assay is provided in a standardized kit to reduce kit to kit and lot to lot variation
- Interprets QC and test results at the same time to determine if the assay passed or failed thus eliminating potential human error
