Fetal RHD screening - change to primary tube testing

Moving to a fully automated process

24 March 2022

Following a Continuous Improvement event, IBGRL Molecular Diagnostics is changing the way the samples are processed. We are removing the freezing step and moving to a fully automated process. This will reduce errors associated with the manual process.

 We need you to:

  1. Only place your laboratory barcodes on the referral form (not on the sample tube) or follow the guidance on acceptable placement of the hospital barcode label on sample tubes (see guidance below).
  2. Please provide one >6mL EDTA tube for this test
