This test will tell you if your blood type is A, B, AB, or O, and whether you are Rh negative or positive depending on what antigens are present on your red blood cells.
Test Description: This test will determine your blood type based on antigens found in your red blood cells. Antigens are proteins on the surface of your blood cells that can cause a response from the immune system, which is good in fighting disease. The results will tell the health professional what blood or blood components will be safe for you to receive. They can also tell a pregnant woman whether she is Rh positive or Rh negative, and whether she may be a candidate for receiving Rh immune globulin to prevent her from potentially developing antibodies against her fetus blood cells. Therefore, this test is recommended for people anticipating a blood transfusion, expectant mothers, and people who are simply curious about their blood type.
