Every day in hospitals all over the world, patients receive life-saving blood transfusions. Without the ability to test and classify blood by types, those transfusions would kill more patients than they save. With this kit, students can learn about basic human biology like antibodies and blood types while exploring how biochemical assays can give doctors critical information. Best of all, we’ve specifically designed this kit to mimic real laboratory work without the need for expensive high-tech equipment and without the safety concerns associated with handling human blood. The kit uses synthetic blood samples that are functionally similar to real blood but are completely safe for handling and student use.
This kit is designed for use with the procedures in the Science Buddies biochemistry project How are Antibodies Used for Blood Typing?.
Instructions for this kit are available online, see below for links to the instructions and more.
