ABO type and Rh are needed to identify candidates for Rh immune globulin and to assess the risk of hemolytic disease of the newborn.

ABO Group and Rh Type

Blood typing is used to determine an individual's blood group, to establish whether a person is blood group A, B, AB, or O and whether he or she is Rh positive or Rh negative.

The Different Blood Types

There are four major blood groups and eight different blood types. Doctors call this the ABO Blood Group System.

The groups are based on whether or not you have two specific antigens -- A and B:

  • Group A has the A antigen and B antibody.
  • Group B has the B antigen and the A antibody.
  • Group AB has A and B antigens but neither A nor B antibodies.
  • Group O doesn’t have A or B antigens but has both A and B antibodies.

There’s also a third kind of antigen called the Rh factor. You either have this antigen (meaning your blood type is “Rh+” or “positive”), or you don’t (meaning your blood type is “Rh-” or “negative”). So, from the four blood groups, there are eight blood types:

  • A positive or A negative
  • B positive or B negative
  • AB positive or AB negative
  • O positive or O negative

ABOtype and Rh are needed from cord blood to determine the newborn's blood type and Rh.

Absolute Lymphocyte Count includes: WBC, Absolute Lymphocytes, % Lymphocytes, % Reactive Lymphocytes

Clinical Significance

Increased understanding of immunodeficiency syndrome and AIDS have identified the importance of absolute lymphocyte count in addition to the specific cell type such as CD4 lymphocytes. In pediatric ages up to 14 years old, acute infectious lymphocytosis is a clinical disorder, suspected to be of enterovirus-Coxsackie A subgroup that may have upper respiratory symptoms, fever, diarrhea and abdominal pain or a totally asymptomatic clinical course. Other conditions with absolute lymphocytosis are B. pertussis infection and lymphocytic leukemoid reaction. The most commonly known lymphocytosis with atypical morphology is due to cytomegalovirus and infectious mononucleosis. The malignant forms of absolute lymphocytosis are mostly due to lymphoproliferative disorders.


Clinical Significance

This test can be used to detect the presence or absence of large deletions in the HBA1 or HBA2 gene in patients or their family members suspected of having alpha thalassemia or who are carriers of alpha globin deletions. The assay can also be used in the prenatal diagnosis of alpha thalassemia. The assay does not determine the type or breakpoint of the rearrangement. This assay can be used instead of southern blot analysis to determine the total number of intact alpha globin genes.

Methodology

Capillary Electrophoresis • Multiplex PCR

Limitations

This test does not identify whether a two-gene deletion is in cis (on the same chromosome) or trans (on opposite chromosomes). In the absence of a coexisting deletion on the opposite chromosome, this test can identify the presence of an extra alpha globin gene (alpha triplication).

Amino acid analysis is necessary for the diagnosis of a variety of inborn errors of metabolism. These include, but are not limited to, phenylketonuria, tyrosimemia, citrullinemia, non-ketotic hyperglycinemia, maple syrup urine disease, and homocystinuria. The assay is also key for the continued monitoring of treatment plans for these disorders and useful for assessing nutritional status of patients. Our methodology is highly accurate at very low levels as well as at elevated levels.

Serum calcium is involved in the regulation of neuromuscular and enzyme activity, bone metabolism and blood coagulation. Calcium blood levels are controlled by a complex interaction of parathyroid hormone, vitamin D, calcitonin and adrenal cortical steroids. Calcium measurements are useful in the diagnosis of parathyroid disease, some bone disorders and chronic renal disease. A low level of calcium may result in tetany.

Urinary calcium reflects dietary intake, rate of calcium absorption by the intestine and bone resorption. Urinary calcium is used primarily to evaluate parathyroid function and the effects of vitamin D. A significant number of patients with primary hyperparathyroidism will have elevated urinary calcium. However, there are other clinical entities that may be associated with increased urine calcium: Sarcoidosis, Paget's disease of bone, vitamin D intoxication, hyperthyroidism and glucocorticoid excess. Decreased urine calcium is seen with thiazide diuretics, vitamin D deficiency and familial hypocalciuric hypercalcemia.

The ionized calcium is determined by an ion selective electrode methodology. The result that is generated is pH adjusted. The result is empirically based on a measured pH and ionized calcium concentration normalized to a pH of 7.40. This calculation compensates for in vitro changes in pH due to loss of CO2 through specimen handling. Ionized calcium represents the true "bioavailable" calcium in the circulation. In situations where the total calcium is normal but does not fit the clinical picture, e.g., hyperparathyroidism, a determination of the ionized calcium will, many times, show an elevation in the "bioavailable" calcium component. This may be due to alterations in protein concentrations, especially albumin, that binds most of the calcium in the circulation.


Measurements are used in the diagnosis and treatment of numerous potentially serious disorders associated with changes in body acid-base balance.


There are various kinds of blood disorders. The most frequent ones are blood cancers, clotting disorders, bleeding disorders, and anemias. Like many diseases, early diagnosis is critical for future treatment and care. Continue reading to learn more information concerning these disorders and what measures you can employ to deal with any symptoms you may face. 

What is a Blood Disorder? 

A blood disorder is an illness that hampers the ability of the blood to work properly. Blood disorders tend to impact the following parts of the blood.  

  • Red blood cells transport oxygen throughout the body and carry carbon dioxide to the lungs for expulsion. 
  • White blood cells: These cells are produced in the bone marrow and assist the body in fighting diseases and infections.  
  • Thrombocytes or platelets: These blood cells are colorless and assist the body in forming blood clots. 

Blood Disorder Types 

Here are the common types of blood disorders. 

  • Red blood cell disorders include aplastic anemia, vitamin deficiency anemia, and iron deficiency anemia.
  • White blood cell disorders include myelodysplastic syndrome, lymphoma, and leukemia.
  • Platelet disorders include Bernard-Soulier syndrome, Von Willebrand disease, and hemophilia. 

These disorders decrease the number of proteins, platelets, and cells in the blood, inhibiting a person’s bodily functions. Frequently, mutations can result in the parents transmuting these ailments to their kids. Additionally, lifestyles and medical conditions can also cause these disorders. 

Blood Disorder Symptoms 

Symptoms may be different depending on the type of blood disorder. Nevertheless, here are some of the most frequent blood disorder symptoms. 

  • A diminished red blood cell or hemoglobin concentration may result in anemia symptoms, including shortness of breath, weakness, and extreme fatigue.  
  • Diminished white blood cells may result in chronic infections and fever. 
  • People with decreased platelet levels may suffer from unusual bruising or bleeding. 

Blood Disorder Treatments 

Blood disorder treatments are contingent on the kind of blood disorder, just like blood disorder symptoms. The aim of treatment is to promote the production of blood cells, contain the immune system, and destroy anomalous cells. Here are a few treatments for blood disorders.  

  • Therapeutic options include supplements, antibiotics, and Nplate.
  • Patients may have to undergo a bone marrow transplant surgery for serious blood disorders or receive a blood transfusion.
