Blood Type Test

$ 39.0

There are eight different blood types. This Blood Type Test will help you discover yours.

There are eight blood types; A+, A-,  B+, B-, O+, O-, AB+, AB-. Each individual’s red blood cells carry out the same life-sustaining functions, such as delivering oxygen throughout the body.  Not all blood is alike, and blood type is genetic and determined by the presence or absence of antigens (proteins) on the red blood cells.  There is also a protein called the Rhesus Factor (Rh) factor, which is either present (+) or absent (-) on red blood cells.
This blood type test measures the combination of A and B blood type antigens and specific antibodies that correspond to the four blood groups.  It also detects Rh antigen to determine if your blood type is positive or negative.  It is important to know your blood type for medical care that requires transfusions, pregnancies, or if you are interested in donating blood for specific friends and family members or for the public in general.

What's Tested
  • Blood Type

    Both A and B antigens play a significant role in blood typing, which in combination with specific antibodies create four major blood groups (A, B, AB, and O [has neither the A or B surface protein]).

  • Rhesus Factor

    The third antigen that influences blood type is called Rh, making your blood type either positive when it’s present or negative when it’s absent

  • There are many reasons to know your blood type, and general curiosity is a good one! However, you may need to know your blood type for many situations that arise in life, and this blood test helps you discover your blood type.  The top reasons to find out your blood type:

    • Knowing the right type if you need an emergency transfusion
    • Knowing your type for blood donations
    • Understanding your blood type (especially if it is common or rare)
    • Planning for pregnancy
    • Helping to manage some health conditions that may be influenced by your blood type2
  • There are four main blood types: A, B, AB and O.
    The rarity of blood types differs based on geography; however, in the US:

    • O positive (O+) is the most common blood type
    • AB negative (AB-) is the least common blood type3
  • Your testing will be performed in a CLIA-certified clinical laboratory. Labcorp provides leading-edge medical laboratory tests and services through a national network of primary clinical laboratories and specialty testing laboratories. Our labs perform regular quality assurance testing to ensure our results are accurate.

  • Your results will be provided to you through our secure online portal to view or print. Results are also provided to PWNHealth, which provides professional healthcare provider services for OnDemand tests. If you are accessing your results through your Labcorp Patient account, all users linked to the account will have access to all OnDemand test results. Results may also be provided to a local, state, or federal health authority, but only when legally required. For example, many states require the testing laboratory and healthcare provider to report test results for certain communicable diseases, such as sexually transmitted diseases or COVID-19, to local or state health departments.
