Blood Group (ABO & Rh typing)
Blood Group (ABO & Rh typing) test is used to determine your blood type.
To determine your ABO blood group and Rh type
Blood type test is done to understand your blood type. There are 4 categories of blood:
- Type A has the A antigen.
- Type B has the B antigen.
- Type AB has both A and B antigens.
- Type O has neither A nor B antigens.
Blood groups are classified based on the proteins present on the surface red blood cells (RBCs), known as surface antigens, which are unique to each blood group. Two important antigens or surface identifiers on human RBCs are the A and B antigens. Another important surface antigen is called Rh. Blood typing or blood group testing detects the presence or absence of these antigens to determine a person's ABO blood group and Rh type.
The results of blood typing will figure out if a person is type A, B, AB, or O and if they are Rh negative or positive. The results will tell the healthcare provider about the blood and blood components that are safe to receive, if the person needs blood in some circumstances such as accidents when there is excessive blood loss, certain blood disorders or during some medical surgeries. Blood group AB are considered as universal recipients and can accept blood from donors of any blood group, and those with blood group “O” are called universal donors, where their blood can be accepted by recipients of all blood group. Rest of the blood groups-A and B, can receive or transfuse blood restricted to those with blood group A and B, respectively; however patients with these blood groups can accept blood from persons with blood group O and donate blood to those with blood group AB.
