How is cross matching done?

Advertisement
Cross matching is done by mixing a small sample of recipient blood with a small sample of the donor blood. The mixed blood is looked under a microscope to see if there is any clumping of blood. If there is no clumping it indicates that it is safe to transfuse the donor blood. People must receive blood of the same blood type else serious, sometimes fatal, transfusion reaction can occur. Cross matching is essential for organ transplantation since ABO antigens are also found on most body organs.

My mother blood group B and my father is A then my blood group is O HOW IS POSSIBLE?

Guest Thursday, May 15, 2014

It seems "A" can be genetically AO, and "B" can be BO, such that the offspring, which gets one letter from each parent, can be OO.
