Reference Laboratory Services

The Immunohematology Reference Laboratory (IRL) provides specialized services to assist hospitals:

  • Testing and consultation services for solving patients’ red blood cell serological problems
  • Antigen-negative blood for patients with red cell antibodies or to prevent the formation of red cell alloantibodies in patients who require frequent blood transfusions
  • Search and acquisition of units for patients with rare phenotypes, involving red blood cells and platelets
  • Search and acquisition of HLA-compatible platelet units for patients who are refractory to platelet transfusions due to antibodies directed against HLA antigens. IRL staff can also help coordinate laboratory testing of patients to determine the presence of immune platelet refractoriness. Testing may include HLA antibody screening, HLA antibody specificity, or HLA typing of patients.

The IRL is always staffed and willing to be of service.
