We did quite a bit of work with this assay back in 06-07. We had great hopes for it, but we experienced the same problems that you experienced. I have not heard anything from the vendor and have quit asking because there was never any progress being made.
We presented a poster on the Solid Phase Crossmatch at the 2001 ASHI meeting. We found that it can accurately assess levels of antibody specific for HLA-A, -B and -DRB1, but it underestimates antibody specific for HLA-C, -DRB3,4,5, -DQB1, -DQA1 and -DPB1. Does anyone have similar findings? Have there been any improvements in antibody detection to these antigens in the last 2 years?
