Blood Type Chart - ABO
Human Blood Typing Table
by Vaughn Aubuchon

What's your Blood Type? If you don't know, you should be tested (for emergency purposes, when you may need the blood right away, and there is no "Universal Donor" blood available).

Compare your ABO blood group with the others on the chart. Where do you fit in? Are you a universal donor? Are you a universal recipient? Do you need to match blood type for cord blood?
