A panel of reagent type O erythrocytes, with known antigenic determinants and the patient's cells are tested with the patient's serum/plasma. This panel should yield a distinct pattern of agglutination or hemolysis that identifies the auto- or alloantibody specificity. Elution, absorption, neutralization, and other special techniques may be necessary to complete antibody identification.
