Rapid Stain Identification of Human Blood (RSID™-Blood) uses two monoclonal antibodies in a lateral flow format to detect the presence of human glycophorin A. Glycophorin A is abundantly and specifically expressed in red blood cells where it is thought to prevent cellular aggregation.
RSID™-Blood is specific for human blood and has numerous advantages over other methods of blood detection, including increased specificity, and no High Dose Hook effect.
