DESCRIPTION

The Erycard Blood Type Test Kit helps to easily answer this common question: "What is my blood type?"

This single-use kit is specifically designed for educational use, and contains everything needed to perform one complete blood test for ABO and Rh.

It's simple, easy-to-use, and comes with step-by-step instructions. Here's how it works:

  1. Prick your finger with the included finger pricker, and add a drop of blood to each small well of the Erycard (there are 4 total)
  2. Add buffer to the 4 wells beneath the blood-filled wells to rinse them
  3. Observe as some wells remain red, while others wash away clear (wells that agglutinate* will remain red, while those that do not will wash away clear)
  4. Using the 4-well combination of clear and red, you will be able to determine your blood type with the included key

Possible ABO blood groups include A, B, AB, and O. Each of these can be Rh-positive or Rh-negative, meaning there are 8 possible blood types people can have: A+ or A-, B+ or B-, AB+ or AB-, and O+ or O-.

*Blood typing is based on the way red blood cells clump together or agglutinate. Agglutination is caused by the presence of Anti-A & Anti-B antibodies reacting with the A & B antigens in the red blood cells.
