Antibody-free blood typing

S. S. Piletsky, S. Rabinowicz, Z. Yanga, C. Zagara, E. V. Piletska, A. Guerreiro and S. A. Piletsky have published a paper entitled “Development of Molecularly Imprinted Polymers specific for blood antigens for application in antibody-free blood typing”. The paper describes the synthesis of paramagnetic molecularly imprinted nanoparticles with binding sites specific to blood antigen trisaccharides.

blood typing

This paper highlights their application in a bloodtype test as an alternative to commonly used antibodies. It describes a successful molecular imprinting of oligosaccharides, a class of molecules rarely addressed by molecular imprinters.

The paper featured on the front cover of Chemical Communications. For a link to the ChemComm website click here
