Dogs have many blood types on the surface of their red blood cells and with the absence of test kits for all of these blood groups (except for DEA 1), it is mandatory to perform a reliable crossmatch test before any transfusion. Crossmatching aims to establish serological compatibility between the recipient and the donor. Our canine major crossmatch test will allow you to pick up incompatibilities across all canine blood groups (DEA 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, DAL…).

Our canine crossmatch test (major and/or minor) is based on an immuno-chromatographic technology that will detect the presence of immunoglobulins (IgG & IgM) and/or C3 components binding to the red blood cells (RBCs) surface.
The crossmatch is negative = compatible.
The crossmatch is positive = incompatible.
C = Control line > Must show a positive line
