Blood groups are determined by a protein (antigen) on the surface of the red cell. So, the ABO system has A and B antigens and the RhD system has the D antigen..

The most important blood groups in transfusion are the ABO blood group system and the RhD blood group system.

AB0 blood grouping system


According to the AB0 blood group system there are four different kinds of blood groups: A, B, AB or 0 (null).



Blood group A

If you belong to the blood group A, you have A antigens on the surface of your red blood cells and B antibodies in your blood plasma.


Blood group B

If you belong to the blood group B, you have B antigens on the surface of your red blood cells and A antibodies in your blood plasma.


Blood group AB


If you belong to the blood group AB, you have both A and B antigens on the surface of your red blood cells and no A or B antibodies at all in your blood plasma.


Blood group 0


If you belong to the blood group 0 (null), you have neither A or B antigens on the surface of your red blood cells but you have both A and B antibodies in your blood plasma.

Blood transfusions – who can receive blood from whom?


Of course you can always give A blood to persons with blood group A, B blood to a person with blood group B and so on. But in some cases you can receive blood with another type of blood group, or donate blood to a person with another kind of blood group.


The transfusion will work if a person who is going to receive blood has a blood group that doesn't have any antibodies against the donor blood's antigens. But if a person who is going to receive blood has antibodies matching the donor blood's antigens, the red blood cells in the donated blood will clump.



People with blood group 0 Rh - are called "universal donors" and people with blood group AB Rh+ are called "universal receivers."


Rh+ blood can never be given to someone with Rh - blood, but the other way around works. For example, 0 Rh+ blood can not be given to someone with the blood type AB Rh -.

Donate Blood!!

The purpose of life is not to be happy - but to matter, to be productive, to be useful, to have it make some difference that you have lived at all

Be a blood donor. All it costs is a little love

Rarest Blood group : AB Negative
Most Common group: O Positive


Someone, somewhere needs what you, and only you, may be able to give. So why wait?
