Blood Group Blood Test
Haematology (1 Biomarker)
From the expert
Red blood cells have various proteins on their surface called antigens. Also, blood plasma contains antibodies which will attack certain antigens if they are present. There are various types of red blood cell antigens - the ABO and rhesus types are the most important. Combining the above types will give you your blood group.
Your blood group depends on which antigens occur on the surface of your red blood cells. Your genetic make-up which you inherit from your parents determines which antigens occur on your red blood cells.

- You want to find out what blood group you are
