Blood Grouping and Typing-Tube Agglutination Test - Best Price
Patient Preparing : No specific preparation is required for this test.
Blood grouping and typing using the Tube Agglutination Method is a laboratory technique commonly used to determine an individual's ABO and Rh blood group. Blood grouping and typing are fundamental procedures in transfusion medicine, ensuring the compatibility of blood given during transfusions. Blood is categorized into different groups based on the presence or absence of specific antigens on the surface of red blood cells. The two most important classifications to know for blood transfusions are the ABO and Rh systems. The Tube Agglutination Method is one of the oldest and traditional methods for blood grouping and typing. This method helps in determining an individual’s ABO and Rh blood group by observing the agglutination or clumping of red blood cells.
The Tube Agglutination Method involves mixing a small sample of blood with specific antisera in test tubes. The antisera contain antibodies that will cause the blood cells to agglutinate if the corresponding antigens are present on their surface. The tubes are then gently mixed and left at room temperature. Afterward, the technician observes the tubes for agglutination. The presence or absence of agglutination is used to determine the blood group.
