Knowing your blood type is vital in an emergency situation where you might need a blood transfusion. This test determines your blood type (A, B, AB, or O) and Rh factor (positive or negative).

What is this test?

Your blood type is based on which antigens, substances that dictate your immune response, are found on your red blood cells. Knowing your blood type is necessary before receiving a blood transfusion or organ donation, to ensure your body doesn't reject the new blood or organ. This test can also determine whether a pregnant woman and her fetus have a compatible Rh factor, as Rh factor incompatibility may lead to complications.


Blood Type Test

This test determines your blood type (A,B, AB, O) and your Rh factor. Your Rh factor describes whether you are positive or negative for a certain protein found on the surface of your red blood cells.

What is a Blood Type Test?

The Blood Type Test works by collecting a blood sample and measuring the specific antigens and proteins that determine your blood type. 

Why would my doctor order a Blood Type Test?

Your provider may order a Blood Type Test if you need surgery, are pregnant, want to donate blood, or have no existing record of your blood type. 

When should I order a Blood Type Test?

It is crucial to know your blood type before certain surgeries, and before receiving any type of blood or organ transplant. If you receive a transplant from an incompatible blood type, your body's immune system will attack the new blood cells, which is a potentially fatal event.

You cannot take a Blood Type Test at home — this test can only be administered by a medical professional at a licensed testing facility. 

How do I read the results of the test?

Once you receive the results of your Blood Type Test for candida overgrowth, you will likely be able to read them without consulting with a doctor. If your red blood cells contain: 

  •  the A antigen, you have Type A blood. 
  • the B antigen, you have Type B blood.
  • neither A nor B antigen, you have Type O blood.
  • both A and B antigen, you have AB blood.

Do my results change with age?

No. Your blood type will remain the same throughout your entire life.  

What should I expect at my appointment?

There are no special requirements for the Blood Type Test. Your provider will draw a blood sample from a vein in your arm. Blood Type Test results typically take only 1-2 business days to process.

Lab tests FAQs

No. At Tripment Health, we focus on providing transparent healthcare services to uninsured or under-insured individuals. We’ve negotiated prices directly with lab test facilities to make diagnostic lab panels available to individuals who would rather pay directly than go through a private or government-sponsored insurance carrier.

No. By purchasing a blood panel, you will not be able to submit any claim, bill, or other request for reimbursement to any insurer, third-party payer, or Government health program. However, you can use your FSA or HSA card.

You will receive a payment confirmation email, then an additional email confirming your appointment details (type of test, time and location of appointment, and QR code). You will need to present your QR code to the testing facility in order to check in.

Once your test is complete, you will receive your results within 1-3 business days.

With a blood panel, you can establish your body’s baseline values for basic health measurements like cholesterol (total, triglycerides, HDL, LDL and total cholesterol/HDL ratio), glucose and hemoglobin A1c. Additionally, depending on the blood panel you choose, you will receive data on performance measurements such as Vitamin D, Vitamin B12, Magnesium, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone, and/or Testosterone.
