Automated Capture-R® Ready-ID® Benefits

to Use

Take your laboratory to the next level of productivity with Capture®, a proven solid phase technology for antibody screening and identification.

Capture’s IgG specific technology provides high sensitivity for clinically significant antibodies, without the noise of IgM antibodies. To improve efficiency, reagent red blood cells are bound to test wells at the time of manufacture so there are no liquid reagent red blood cells to manage.​

High Accuracy.

  • Detect clinically significant antibodies with IgG specific technology - compares to enzyme methods without the added work1
  • Provides high sensitivity for clinically significant antibodies, without the noise of IgM
  • Reports describe the use of Werfen products to help mitigate interference with monoclonal antibody therapies2, 3

Easy to Use.

  • Save time with ready to use reagents
  • No liquid identification-cells to manage because we use pre-coated antibody screen and identification cells
  • Less hands-on time with no precision pipetting required
  • Simplify training with the same methodology and procedures for all assays

Versatility and Flexibility for Labs of All Sizes.

  • Run a single sample or a full batch
  • Manual, semi-automated and fully automated scalable solutions
  • Wide range of assays utilize the same test platform

Consistent and Accurate Manufacturing.

  • Werfen has a rich supply of donors. Our database of over 10,000 typed donors is utilized to create the best antigen profile on every lot.
  • Our donors are phenotyped by two separate laboratories using unique reagents.
  • We apply our experience with molecular immunohematology (MIH) to enhance the value of our serological products. Each donor’s full antigen profile, including extended antigen typing by PreciseType HEA DNA analysis is provided on the Supplemental Unit Typings (SUT) with each antibody identification panel.

You have multiple options for automated identification of red blood cell antibodies:​​

​Product Description
​Capture-R Ready-ID ​The primary Ready-ID 2x8 strips contain test wells coated with the red cell membranes of 14 O single donors. The donors are selected to possess most of the frequently inherited antigens.
​Capture-R Ready-ID Extend I D positive panel: 2x8 strips contain test wells coated with D-positive red cell membranes of 14 group O single donors.
​Capture-R Ready-ID Extend II ​D negative panel: 2x8 strips contain test wells coated with D-negative red cell membranes of 13 group O single donors and 1 D-positive red cell membrane of a group O single donor.

Our facility has a solid organ transplant program and performs a high number of ABO titers. We were performing these titers using manual tube method, which is both time-consuming and highly dependent on using proper technique. We have many generalists rotate through the blood bank. It was difficult for us to maintain competency and consistency performing ABO titers. Automating titers has freed up our techs to perform other tasks as well as give the physician a more accurate and reproducible result.
