Blood Typing: Blood (hemoglobin) had to be extracted from human finger to collect blood. Once blood was extracted it was placed on one side of the two bubbles on on the blood test card. On the other was an antiserum. There are three sections on this card. The first section labeled for anti-A serum, the second section labeled for anti-B serum, and the last is labeled as anti-D serum. As stated above, within each section blood was placed within the bubble of each section then mixed using a toothpick. The group focused on mainly between antiserum A and antiserum B. We examined the samples for clumping or granulation within 2 minutes. Since everyone's blood is different, each one's blood results was either A, B, AB, or O. In other words, if both blood samples coagulated, one had a sample of type AB blood. If neither samples agglutinates, they that person had a sample type of O blood. If the blood with antiserum A agglutinated, then they had type A blood, and if blood with antiserum B agglutinated then they had a sample of type B blood.
Hematocrit: Percentage of red blood cells in the total blood volume. After using machine to swiftly separate all the content from the sickle cell anemia the tube displayed individual contents from within the blood. Using a measuring graph, the tube was moved across from right to left until a student was able to determine exactly where the point between the yellow and red coloration was pinpointed.
