Blood Typing

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 10 May 2022

Blood typing is an approach to inform what type of blood you have. Blood typing is done so you can securely donate your blood or get a blood transfusion. It is done to see if you have a substance called Rh variable on the surface area of your red blood cells. Your blood group is based on whether particular proteins get on your red cell. The test to establish your blood group is called ABO typing. Your blood example is mixed with antibodies versus type A and B blood. It implies the blood reacted with one of the antibodies if blood cells stick together. The liquid part of your blood without cells is mixed with blood that is known to be type A and type B. People with type A blood have anti-B antibodies. People with type B blood have anti-A antibodies. Type O blood consists of both types of antibodies.
