Glycomapping the fine specificity of monoclonal and polyclonal Lewis antibodies with type‐specific Lewis kodecytes and function‐spacer‐lipid constructs printed on paper

Summary: Using FSL constructs, we were able to show substantial cross-reactivity of both MoAbs and PoAbs with related antigens highlighting the risks of using serologic reagents in nonserologic assays.

Training students in serologic reaction grading increased perceptions of self‐efficacy and ability to recognize serologic reactions but decreased grading accuracy

Summary: The use of serologic grading panels created with kodecytes was suitable as a tool to recognize and monitor serologic grading abilities. Evidence suggests that for both students and practitioners to gain and sustain competency in serologic reaction recognition and grading, they will require ongoing training and monitoring of competence.
