The 5th edition of Standards for Molecular Testing for Red Cell, Platelet, and Neutrophil Antigens (MT Standards) contains requirements for facilities using molecular methods to predict blood group antigens on red cells, platelets, and neutrophils, as well as quality system requirements, operational standards, and a detailed list of inventory resources necessary for the identification of targeted nucleotides that encode these antigens.
Organized according to the Quality System’s Essentials quality template, the MT Standards addresses operational aspects such as test methods including Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism Testing, DNA Testing for Nucleotide Sequence Determination or Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) Analysis, and DNA Array. The guiding principle of this document is to be consistent with available scientific information while focusing on patient advocacy and optimal care for donors. These MT Standards represent the minimum requirements under which a laboratory specializing in molecular testing should operate.
