In today’s crime investigation world determination of ABO blood grouping is still a very vital and effective precess in the field of forensic crime scenes. This investigation involves the identification of blood group, on the clothes (Accuse, Victim, injured, Complainer) collected from the scene of crime, and its cross comparision with the blood sample send by medical officer. Hence for this purpose total of 200 cases were included in the study having the samples of blood of accuse, victim…

Frequency of ABO and Rhesus blood groups in Saudi healthy blood donors versus non-Saudi in a retrospective study in Makkah City
In Makkah city, the higher frequency of ABO blood group in Saudi and non-Saudi people is O followed by A, then B, and AB, and the Rh-positive is predominant, and 8.4% of the participants are negative.


Role of gel based technique for Coomb's test.
The GT is a better alternative to the CTT for both DAT and IAT and is highly recommended to be implemented as a routine method of testing in all zonal / regional blood transfusion centers.
The gel test: a new way to detect red cell antigen‐antibody reactions
A new process for the detection of red cell (RBC) antigen antibody reactions is described, applicable to most of the tests performed in blood group serology and it is easy to perform, sensitive, and reproducible.

The gel test is a reliable and advantageous method and is appropriate for routine use for detection and identification of alloantibodies in a community hospital transfusion service laboratory.
Evaluation of the ID‐gel test for antibody screening and identification
The gel system was easy to use and gave reliable, reproducible results and the number of non‐specific antibodies and false‐positive screens were reduced using the gel test system.
Use of the gel-based DiaMed-ID microtyping system for crossmatching enhances sensitivity.
The DiaMed system proved to be more sensitive than the conventional tube agglutination technique as the reported number of incompatible units in one year rose from a paltry 4 (0.02%) to 260 (1.6%).
A new test for the detection of weak and incomplete Rh agglutinins.
The test was -originally intended as an instrument of research; but it promises to be of practical use, since it has detected Rh immunization in some cases where the usual tests have failed to .
Comparison of tube and gel techniques for antibody identification
Based on this study, the gel test is more sensitive than the tube test for identifying potentially clinically significant antibodies.
Gel techniques in blood group serology.
Gel systems have been found to be more sensitive than conventional serological techniques, particularly for the detection and identification of clinically significant antibodies, and provide greater reliability of results and enhance standardisation and control of laboratory procedures.
Detection of alloimmunization to ensure safer transfusion practice
Red cell antibody screening and identification and subsequent issue of antigen negative blood have a significant role in improving blood safety and may become significantly complicated in the future.
