Learning Objectives

After participating in this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Explain current testing approaches in cases of RHCE variants.
  • Recognize when to use molecular methods to solve serology problems.
  • Examine patient cases where genomic testing is used help guide transfusion in patients with variant RHCE genes.

Program Description

Molecular genotyping provides new solutions to old problems. In this program, problem solving approaches using the combination of serology and molecular methods will be explained.
