Blood typing without biohazards

  • Safe for classroom use
  • Realistic blood typing results
  • Easily and safely discarded
  • No risk of blood-borne diseases

The ability to type blood is an invaluable tool in medicine and criminology. Using this kit, students test 4 synthetic blood samples to identify their ABO and Rh blood types. The simulated agglutination reactions are extremely realistic. Kit and Value Kit contain no blood, blood products, or materials of biological origin, so there is no danger of disease transmission. Kit contains enough materials for a class of 30 working in pairs. Value Kit comes with sufficient materials to conduct the lab with 4 classes of 30 students working in pairs. Refills contain synthetic blood and antisera replacements.

Carolina® Synthetic Blood has several advantages over other suppliers' products, which usually depend on chemical reactions producing insoluble salts that precipitate from solutions. These products do not give visually realistic results. In actual blood typing, red blood cells form clumps (the agglutination reaction) that separate from the blood plasma. When mixed the appropriate synthetic antiserum, Carolina® Synthetic Blood forms clumps in the same way, for a realistic blood typing result. It's the closest to authentic blood typing that you can get without using real blood.

Note: Use with Carolina® Synthetic Blood products and accessories only. Not designed for actual blood typing.

 
 
 
 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Teaching Tool I used this kit in my Anatomy class to teach about blood types. I was able to create an extended lab that examined blood evidence from a crime scene. The task was to determine which suspects could not have been at the crime scene.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set up. Good handouts. This was straightforward easy lab to set up. Kids followed it easily.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Blood Typing Experience This is a very good blood typing experience, very safe also. I gave this 4 stars because we have run out of the anti-sera before we run out of blood samples to test. This has happened every year that I have used the kit. In previous years I had some anti-sera bottles left over from a previous teacher (also had blood samples but did not use old blood samples). There needs to be 2 bottles of the anti-sera in the kit, please.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product is straightforward Product and materials are extremely straight forward. Easy to see the the clotting. One added bonus is the worksheet for the students. It does a great job of building up knowledge by creating a chart of what to look for BEFORE they do the lab. That way the lower students have something to look back on when they do the actual activity.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works good but not a great value This is a good blood typing kit that is safe to use. I use this with my freshman biology classes, and they enjoy it. My one complaint is that the serum vials run out quickly - especially the serum D vial; as a result, some of my students could not test for the RH factor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I have always used this as an introduction lab to blood typing in Forensic Science. We us blood typing to solve crimes and students do their own blood typing as well. This is an excellent way to teach them blood typing before we do all of the other labs that use blood typing to solve mysteries and crimes. It would also be excellent in Anatomy for blood typing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and effective, no biohazard I work in afterschool and supplementary education. Coming from a biochem background I try to share this as much as possible with students. This is a simple and effective tool to to teach blood typing, especially because I do not have a lab for more advanced experiments. I would say this kit may benefit from supplementary materials beyond the questions and information in the student guide. Color visuals and case studies could make this a lengthier project, though the educator can easily supplement those.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works every time! Blood typing is a great anatomy lab that allows the kids to simulate an actual medical test that would be done in a hospital. The directions are simple. The typing always comes out as it should as long as the kids remember to clean the plates between tests and use new stirring sticks for each. Always make sure the antisera and synthetic blood are fresh. They do not always work well after more than 6 months.
