Blood Grouping and Rh Test Cost

Blood grouping test is done to determine a pregnant women`s blood type which is usually done during the first prenatal visit or first trimester. It is used to determine whether the blood type is A, B, AB or O. Rh typing is done to check if red blood cells have Rh protein or not. During pregnancy, women may produce antibodies against Rh factor, so in this case if pregnant women is Rh negative and her foetus is Rh positive, then it may cause damage to foetus`s red blood cells. Also, this may cause issues in later pregnancy stage.

Blood Grouping and Rh Test cost ranges between Rs.594/- to Rs.700/- depending on the type of lab that you are choosing.

What is the Blood grouping and RH Factor test?

Blood grouping test:

Blood grouping is a method to tell what type of blood you have. This test is done so that you can donate or receive the blood transfusion safely. It is also done to find out if you have the RH factor or not.

Rh factor test:

RH factor is used to find the certain type of protein present on the outer layer of a red blood cell. If you do not have the Rh factor in your blood, you are RH negative, if you have the RH factor in your blood, you are RH positive. Blood type also known as Blood Group, RH factor. The formal name is ABO Group and RH Type.

Why is the Blood grouping + Rh factor test done?

Blood grouping and Rh factor test is done to determine what type of blood an individual has. That is A, B, AB, O or to find out whether the person is RH positive or negative. The test in which both blood typing and the RH factor are determined is generally preferred by the doctors these days as they both are interconnected to each other, and the test is named ABORH.  This test is generally advised by the doctors when you need a blood transfusion or transfusion of the blood components; when you donate blood or organ at the collection facility or donate tissue, bone marrow for transplantation; before or during a female pregnancy to determine the risk of Rh incompatibility with the fetus.

What does the Blood grouping + Rh factor test measure?

The ABO Rh blood typing test is generally done to identify the presence of the specific red blood antibodies and antigen to determine the ABO/Rh type of a person. For instance, if your blood is A positive (+), that means your blood contains type A antigens with the presence of a protein called Rhesus.

How is the Blood grouping + Rh factor test performed?

This test is performed in the laboratory. First of all, the blood sample is drawn from a vein or the tip of the finger or finger stick of the patient by the health professional and then being sent to the respective lab.  In the case of newborns, blood from the spinal cord or a small amount of blood from the heel stick may be used for testing. There your blood sample is mixed with the antibodies against A and B blood. Then the sample is checked to see whether the blood cells stick with each other or not. If they stick together that means they reacted to one of the antibodies.

How to prepare for the Blood grouping + Rh factor test?

There is no test preparation needed.

How to understand Blood grouping + Rh factor test results?

Blood types are based on the markers or antigens that are present on the surface of the red blood cells. The two main antigens on the surface of the human red blood cells are the A and B antigens. Another important surface antigen is the Rh factor. A blood typing test detects the presence or absence of these antigens to determine the person’s ABO blood group and Rh type.

So, it can be understood in this way that people whose red blood cells have A antigens are in blood group A, those with B antigens are group B, those with both A and B antigens are in group AB, and who do not have either of these markers are in blood group O. Similarly, if Rh protein is present on the red blood cells, a person’s blood type is Rh+ (positive) but on the other hand, if it is absent then person’s blood is type Rh- (negative).

A human body naturally produces antibodies against the A and B antigens that are not present on the individual red blood cells. For example, a person who is of blood type A will have the anti-B antigens on their red blood cells. Similarly, a person who is of blood type B will have the Anti-A antibodies directed against the A antigens. People with type AB blood have neither of these antibodies, while those with type O blood have them both.

So, blood donation works as follows:

  • O: Type O individuals can donate the blood to anyone as their blood has no antigens. However, they can only receive the blood from the other type of O individuals.
  • A: Type A individuals can donate the blood to another type A individuals and type AB individuals. Type A individuals can take blood only from other type A and type O individuals.
  • B: Type B individuals can donate blood to other B type and AB individuals. Type B individuals can receive blood from other B type and AB individuals.
  • AB: This type of individual can receive blood from other AB individuals but can also receive the blood of any type.

Blood types are further divided as:

  • Rh-positive: People with RH positive blood have RH antigens on the surface of their red blood cells. People with RH positive can receive blood from RH positive and RH negative blood types.
  • Rh-negative: These types of people do not have RH antigens. They can receive the blood from only RH negative types.

Together the ABO and Rh grouping systems yield to the whole blood typing system. There are eight possible types: O positive, O negative, A positive, A negative, B positive, B negative, AB positive, AB negative.

FAQS

Who is the universal donor?

Type O negative blood does not have any antigens, so it is called a universal donor as it is compatible with any blood type.

How do I identify my blood type?

The test to identify the blood type is ABO typing.

How will the Rh factor impact pregnancy?

The Rh factor from mother’s body can cross the placenta and attack the Rh factor of fetal body cells.
