NEW REDUCED PRICING ON DISTRIBUTOR PACKS
This fast, easy to use blood typing kit
contains everything required to determine blood group and Rh factor
using a whole blood sample obtained from a finger prick without the need
for separate reagents or laboratory training. The EldonCard™ is a
patented test card device that comes specially treated and impregnated
with dried antibody sera Anti-A,
Anti-B and Anti-Rh used universally for determining Blood type by the forward
typing method. Creates a Permanent Blood Type Record Card for medical
histories and emergencies.
In response to many inquires
regarding the possible blood types children can inherit from their parents
Do you know your own blood type? Do you know your children's blood type? This potentially life-saving information can be critical in a medical emergency or disaster crisis when immediate blood transfusion or replacement is required. Unfortunately, surveys indicate that the vast majority of people do not have this critical information either because they don't ask or because there is a notorious reluctance in the medical profession to inform patients of their chart details. The EldonCard blood type test kit uses the basic forward antibody method of blood hematology to easily and quickly provide the user with their blood type (A, AB, B or O) and rhesus factor (Rh negative or Rh positive) in a few minutes without the need for special laboratory supplies or training. By simply comparing the results of blood sample coagulation on the pretreated areas of the blood typing test card with a graphic picture chart, correct blood grouping is known. The test card can then be filled out with personal identification information and laminated with the provided plastic sheet to make a permanent record. The EldonCard blood typing test kit is also excellent for classroom instruction and other educational applications.
Blood typing is determined by the type of antigens or markers that are on the surface of red blood cells (either "A" or "B") and if there are antibodies to a portion of the blood type known as the Rh factor (either "positive" or "negative"). Blood type is inherited from and dependent upon the blood type of an individual's parents. In the case of a transfusion, a person's blood type needs to be compatible with the donor's blood type or an allergic-type reaction can occur resulting from the immune system of the recipient attacking the incompatible donor blood cells as invading organisms. Also, it is also very important to know the Rh factor status when a woman is pregnant. If a pregnant woman is Rh negative and her baby is Rh positive, the mother's immune system can sometimes attack the baby's blood cells because of the differing blood types. All pregnant women should routinely have a blood typing test done to see if they are at risk. This blood typing should generally be done as part of routine prenatal care. A subcutaneous injection of Rh D Immune Globulin can be given during pregnancy to prevent this immune cross-reaction, which may be harmful to the developing fetus.
It is recommended that all pregnant woman and those who need a blood transfusion should determine blood type via a blood type kit, especially the Rh factor. All donated blood has a blood type test performed on it so that donor and recipient blood types match. Paternity testing often involves blood typing, which may or may not be able to prove if someone could be the parent of a child using the basic dominant/recessive gene matrix calculation. There are other, rarer indications for blood typing, such as genetic studies. For facts and figures of interest regarding blood grouping see the Blood Typing FAQ.
MATERIALS PROVIDED WITH EACH
One EldonCard™ Blood typing test card,
foil sealed, sterile. Auto-Lance, spring loaded sterile lancet.
Alcohol preparation swab, sterile gauze plaster, EldonSticks™ sample
collection and transfer devices, transfer pipette, color result chart,
laminating sheet, and instructions. All components assembled and poly
packaged in single procedure kits (One complete blood typing procedure
Read all directionscarefully. Using the pipette provided or other suitable device, add
several drops of water to each of the pretreated test areas to activate
the antibody sera
Lay selected hand, palm up, against a flat table surface.
Holding the lancet device in your hand firmly against the outside tip of your finger,
press the trigger down until it clicks. The blood sample flow will begin
finger down and directly over the cupped end of each of the special
collection EldonSticks™ provided (4) and fill the small cupped end with
a drop of blood (enough to fill the small cup). Details on the
recommended amount are explained in the instructions.
spreading the four samples in the special test areas using the comb
device, the test will develop and coagulation patterns will form in each
box. Compare the patterns to the color chart to find your blood type.
Included with each test kit is a color result chart shown on the left.
This chart illustrates the different test results possible on the
Eldoncard. After the blood typing test is completed and fully developed
the Eldoncard card will resemble the graphic to the right. Using the color
reference result chart shown on the left, the four result test cells of
the Eldoncard are compared to the possible outcomes shown on the reference
chart. Note that the fourth test cell on the card is a control cell and is
used only as a quality control check and evidence that the test was
performed properly. The blood type and Rh factor are then interpreted by
matching the test results from the Eldoncard with the result chart. For
example, using the color chart provided on the left, coagulation is seen
in cells one and three on the
test card. Therefore correlating this result to the chart shows that the
Blood type is A and the Rh factor is positive. Note that the appropriate
identification boxes have been filled in with the name, address, date and
contact information of the individual tested. The card can then be
sealed with the clear plastic laminate cover sheet provided to create a permanent blood
typing record for that individual. View a
