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 contains no blood, blood products, or materials of biological origin, so there is no danger of disease transmission. Comes with enough materials for a class of 30 students working in pairs.

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. Kit Refill (item #700102) is also available.

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

FREE 1-year access to digital resources that support NGSS instruction included.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Class Fun Except for Rh We did this in class and it was a lot of fun and really helped connect the dots to help up learn about Antibodies and Antigens and blood types. Most of the kit worked out, however the Rh or Anti-D Serum is was not reliable and we had mixed results. Some students found clumping others did not. We determined it wasn't the blood samples, as they would clump if you changed Anti-D vials. Some of the Anti-D just didn't work, which was disapointing.

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 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 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 Great Blood Kit! I have been using this kit for several years now with my elementary science classes. It is a quality product and is easy for kids to use. I like that you can order refills for the fluids. That helps save our meager budget.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ABO-Rh blood typing kit This kit is great for teaching about blood types, antigens and agglutination. The students really enjoy it, especially if it's set up like a crime scene. My only complaint is that it comes with only 1 vial of each of the 4 blood samples, and one vial of each serum. This makes it very difficult to do with a large class. This kit would be A+++ if it had 4 to 5 sets of each of the blood samples and serum samples so that you could set up stations and rotate kids through them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to use, highly effective illustration of principle this product is clean, efficient, and illustrates the principles of blood typing perfectly. I actually bought it out of my own pocket, I wanted my students to use it so much. perfect for a biology, genetics, anatomy & physiology, and forensic science class (the latter being what i used it for)
