More about this test

The possible blood types are O positive (O+), O negative (O-), A positive (A+), A negative (A-), B positive (B+), B negative (B-), AB positive (AB+) and AB negative (AB-).

O negative is known as the universal donor and AB positive is known as the universal recipient.

The negative or positive part of the blood type (eg, O+) is determined by whether someone is Rh positive or negative. Rhesus (Rh) factor is an inherited protein on the surface of red blood cells. If your blood has this protein, you are Rh positive. If your blood lacks the protein, you're Rh negative. Your Rh status is important during pregnancy, since the fetus has to be compatible with the mother’s Rh type.
