Station 2 Blood Typing Application
Manny and Janelle participate in a Red Cross blood drive. Both are first time donors,
and as part of the screening process must be blood typed. Manny is typed as A+ and
Janelle is AB+. Manny’s and Janelle’s donations are sent to a processing center where
their blood cells are separated from their plasma. Both their separated cells and plasma
are sent to a hospital. A blood researcher wishes to use Manny’s blood in an attempt to
extract and identify the A antigen.
Based on the information above, answer the questions below.
1. What antibody is found in Manny’s blood? _______________
2. What antibody is found in Janelle’s blood? _______________
3. Should the researcher extract Manny’s blood cells or plasma? Why?
4. Where would you find the antibodies in the blood? _________________________
