Following isolation of paternal peripheral blood mononuclear cells, incubation with maternal blood serum is then performed. Incubation with paternal serum is used as negative control. The cells are then incubated with the following combinations of monoclonal antibodies (triple direct immunofluorescence – FITC–PE–PE/Cy5): CD3 – CD19 – IgM and CD3 – CD19 – IgG.

SPECIMEN TYPE:1x peripheral blood (EDTA) from the male partner and 1x serum from both partners

SAMPLE COLLECTION: For collection of blood samples, you should arrange for a healthcare professional to draw the bloods for you according to the instructions, in a licensed medical facility.
