Description

ABO Grouping tests are one of the most fundamental blood tests used for assessing an individual’s health. They evaluate the ABO and Rh (D) type of the blood in a person’s body. ABO Grouping tests are important because they help identify potential tissue compatibility issues between two individuals before a major blood transfusion or transplant. The test looks for specific antigens, or proteins, on the surface of red blood cells which are used to identify the individual’s ABO blood type. Knowing a person’s ABO blood type is essential to ensure compatibility with donors and to avoid potential adverse reactions from donor blood. Knowing the blood type of a person can also help assess the potential risk of disease transmission from blood transfusions and organ transplants. ABO Grouping tests can also be used to help diagnose hereditary blood disorders or to determine paternity.
