Blood group types

A blood group is a classification of the blood and is determined by heredity. The most common blood types are A, B, AB and O and are called the ABO system.

ABO group determination for blood group self-test

A person with blood group A has on the red blood cells a protein called antigen A. A person with blood type B has a protein called antigen-B. A person with blood type AB has both proteins on the red blood cells. A person with blood type O has no protein on the red blood cells. The blood plasma may contain one, both or no antibodies to antigen A and antigen B. In principle, people only have antibodies against the blood group that they themselves do not have. For example, someone with blood type A will never have the anti-A antibody in his blood.

Rhesus factor determination for blood group selftest

There is also the rhesus blood group system, which is much more complicated than the ABO system. The most important part of the rhesus system is the antigen D and the corresponding antibody anti-D. Antigen D is also found on the surface of red blood cells and if one has this antigen one is called D-positive, or rhesus positive. No anti-D antibody will be found in the blood of someone who is rhesus positive. If there is no antigen D on the red blood cells, this is called D-negative or rhesus negative. Normally, one does not find anti-D antibodies in the blood of rhesus negative people, but if a D-negative person has ever received D-positive red blood cells, one may develop anti-D antibodies.

User guide

Blood type self-test

By means of a finger prick, you apply blood to the test circles. Based on the absence and/or presence of agglutination (clotting), your blood type is determined. This method of determining a blood type is used worldwide.

You put the blood on a test card. On the basis of the test card and the result summary in the leaflet, you can determine your blood type. You can let the test card dry after the self-test. You can also add your blood type, your name, address and possibly your photograph. Then the whole thing can be sealed with the adhesive film supplied and you will have your personalised blood type card on hand.

For a complete and extensive description, we refer you to the leaflet of the test, read it carefully before using the test.
