The perfect match

ID CORE XT is a fast and effective solution for molecular typing of 37 red blood cell antigens, designed and manufactured by Grifols*.

Recently, DNA-based testing has proved to be an extremely effective technique that can, in certain situations, provide advantages over current serology techniques.

Within BLOODchip® ID Line, Grifols offers ID CORE XT, an innovative blood group genotyping assay that detects 29 polymorphisms determining 37 red blood cell antigens. The kit is based on Luminex™ Technology, resulting in a highly reliable and accurate system.

A unique accompanying software (BIDS XT) is offered to assist you throughout the genotyping procedure and to manage the data.

BLOODchip® ID is the fastest and most effective solution for ensuring the safest transfusion therapy for your patients.


  • One multiplex PCR
  • No filtration required
  • Only 4 tubes to pipette


  • < 4h overall time from DNA to result
  • 30 min hands on time


  • From 1 to 96 samples per run
  • ID CORE XT and ID HPA XT can be performed in the same run

Its main applications include, determining the presence/absence of blood groups in chronically and recently transfused patients, screening routine donors, and selecting compatible donors. BLOODchip® ID helps you to provide better matched units to improve patient care.
