Donor Blood Antigen Profiling

Donor Blood Antigen Profiling

Ireland's population is increasing and becoming more diverse, this has potential implications for the Irish Blood Transfusion Service to provide ‘best-matched’ blood for the optimal care of patients


  • To determine the distribution of ABO, RH and other clinically significant blood group antigen systems (BGSs) in Irish donors
  • To provide real-time donor antigen information
  • To compare donor antigen profiles with those required for transfusion in various patient groups


On-Going Research

  • Alloimmunisation in multi-transfused high-risk populations
  • Enhanced donor antigen matching and risk of alloimmunisation
