Reason/Issue There is an issue with the AHG Control Cells not testing as expected. It is giving very weak positive reactions when it should be giving a strong reaction when validating Antiglobulin tests.
IH Production has determined that the product was not formulated correctly, as the trial pool of the Anti-Rh Sensitising Reagent and the bulk were not made to the same strength due to operator error. This has resulted in the bulk Anti-Rh Sensitising Reagent being made 10 x weaker than the trial pool. This weak batch was used for formulating the AHG Control Cells.
