NHS Blood and Transplant perform over 7,000 transfusions per day. In order to ensure the safety of each of these transfusions it is critical to identify the blood group of both donor and recipient. Currently, antibody-based identification methods are used. However, typing reagents for rare blood groups are often expensive, unavailable or unreliable. DNA -based techniques can be used to identify all blood groups of an individual in a single test. Adoption of high throughput DNA based blood typing will allow blood bank organisations to save money, provide better patient care and prevent deaths.
