Abstract

The most common type of transplantation is a blood transfusion. The American Society for Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics (ASHI) accredited laboratories are required to perform blood tests for transplant and blood transfusion such as DNA typing, flow cytometry technology, HLA typing, and ABO/RhD typing in accordance with the standards of ASHI. Recent medical technologists perform a wide range of new clinical laboratory tests and operate new laboratory equipment in immunological and DNA analysis for transplant and blood transfusion. Therefore, advanced training is required to become a medical technologist, and the curriculum of the school to become a medical technologist was revised this year. This short review presents an overview of the current basic blood tests for transplant and blood transfusion under the new curriculum classification.
