Using an easy-to-understand writing style, this text integrates immunohematology theory and application to provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to be successful in blood banking. Problem-solving exercises and case studies help you develop a solid understanding of all areas of blood banking.

    • Learning objectives begin each chapter.
    • Illustrated blood group boxes throughout chapter 6, Other Blood Group Systems, give the ISBT symbol, number, and the clinical significance of the antibodies at a glance.
    • Margin notes and definitions in each chapter highlight important material and offer additional explanations.
    • Chapter summaries recap the most important points of the chapter.
    • Study questions at the end of each chapter provide an opportunity for review.
    • Critical thinking exercises with case studies help you apply what you have learned in the chapter.
    • UPDATED! Information and photos on automation include equipment actually used in the lab.
    • Flow charts showing antibody detection and identification help you detect and identify antibodies.
