Neonatal Blood Group, DAT, and Antibody Screen

Alternate Names
Neonatal Group and Screen
Ordering Information

Please note this test has to be requested for purposes of red cell transfusion and that just a Neonatal Blood Group and DAT will not suffice for red cell transfusion purposes. 

Please note that the neonatal group and screen is valid for a period of 4 months from the date of birth of the neonate unless the mother has a clinically significant antibody, in which case the neonatal group and screen will be only valid for a period of three days from testing.
