IS9008 Forensic Chemistry of Blood Types Kit
Blood typing is a method of classifying blood based on the presence or absence of specific proteins, called antigens, on the surface of red blood cells. Blood type, an inherited characteristic, is valuable to know in that it affects medical procedures, such as surgery and transfusions, paternity testing, as well as serving as evidence in criminal investigations. Determining blood type can help provide supporting evidence or eliminate a possible suspect’s involvement in a crime. Kit contains enough material for 15 groups. Teacher’s Manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are included.
