Comments:   RBC Antigen genotyping 94% for first quarter of 2022. Failed GYB*03 genotype result for CAP sample RAG-B, RAG-04. The expected result was GYPB*03/03. LinkSeq reported the result as GYPB*03/04. Repeat testing on alternative assay yielded expected result. Sample was then repeated on original assay and correct result was obtained. The assay manufacturer is unable to explain why the assay gave an incorrect call on the original test.
