When molecular testing was first introduced, it was performed in laboratories that were specialized, usually in immunohematology reference labs (IRLs) staffed by experienced immunohematologists. Because of its advanced precision, molecular testing is now used in a wider array of facilities. Many technologists who now have access to this technology were not trained in molecular test methods and do not understand how to interpret the results. The instruction they need is available only if they read all of the journal articles that were originally published on molecular testing.
The book is an approachable guide to molecular testing as it relates to blood banking and Immunohematology. Methods are discussed, allele tables explained, and nuances taught, so that the reader will better understand and use the resources that are available. It is also a consolidated reference that supervisors or medical directors can refer to if they want to check the interpretation of a report from an IRL. SBB students or pathology residents studying for exams will find it a useful tool as well.
