TEST IT Gel Newborn

ABO
The ABO system is the most important blood group system in transfusion practice and was the first human blood group system to be discovered by Landsteiner in 1900. The ABO blood group is defined by the presence or absence of the A and/or B antigens on the surface of human red blood cells and by the presence or absence of antibodies in the serum corresponding to the antigen or antigens missing in the red blood cells. The human blood group is determined directly by testing the red blood cells with known anti-A and anti-B reagent, known as forward grouping. In newborns, A and B antigens are not completely developed at birth and weaker reactions may occur with red cells of newborns than of adults and subgroups often cannot be identified. Plasma or serum typing (“reverse” group) is not performed because ABO antibodies do not appear in serum until 4-6 months after birth. The determination of the RhD antigens of the newborns is important and D antigens are fully developed at birth. The direct Coombs test confirms the the newborn’s red cells have been sensitized with maternal antibodies.
Rh (D)
After the A and B antigens of the ABO blood group system, D is the most important blood group antigen in transfusion practice. The terms "Rh-positive" and "Rh-negative" refer to the presence or absence of the D (Rho) red blood cell antigen. The D antigen is one of many that comprise the Rh blood group system. The presence or absence of the D antigen is determined by testing the red blood cells with Anti-D. Some individuals have a variant Rh(D) gene that red blood cells have all epitopes of D but expressed weakly(weak D) or red blood cells have some missing D epitopes (partial D).2 Various anti-D reagents react dierently with these red cells and provide interpreting Rh(D) type.
