Provide a truly unique and exciting personal experience… Blood Typing with Saliva allows students to determine their own blood type without drawing blood. Students use their own saliva, from which secretors (80% of students) are able to determine their ABO blood type. This kit provides real antisera for demonstrating classic ABO blood typing agglutination reactions. It also includes lectin for demonstrating agglutination of type O cells. Ideal for students in advanced biology, physiology, biochemistry, or forensic science. Includes an enhanced instructor’s manual with background information, reproducible student worksheets, and complete answer keys. Antisera and Blood Cells are perishable. Refrigeration prolongs shelf life. Reply card included for blood cells and lectin; materials must ship 2nd day on ice in summer months. Reply card items shipped only within the continental United States. Cells must be refrigerated and used within 20 days. Materials provided are sufficient for up to 50 tests.
