Innovating Science® - Determination of Blood Type Using Real Blood and Saliva

Chemical products can only be purchased by Corporations and Educational Institutions, private Individuals are not eligible. Chemicals can not be shipped to a residential address.

Manufacturer ID - IS3190

Students will learn about acids and bases through a class discussion and then test a dilute acid and dilute base with neutral litmus paper to learn how the paper indicates something is acidic or basic. Once that skill is learned they can move on to test some common items that would be found around their house to determine if they are acids or bases. Optional: Extra litmus paper is included to test more items either from home or around the school building for a greater understanding of acids and bases. The activity contains enough materials for 6 groups of students.

Safety Data Sheet

This kit has been designed to allow students to test their own saliva to determine their ABO blood type. Students that are part of the ~80% of the human population that secrete their blood antigens with perform titers to understand which blood type they belong to. These titers will be performed using supplied screened/typed human blood samples allowing the students to better understand how real blood typing works and what would happen if the wrong blood was given to a patient needing a transfusion. The initial box contains all of the non-perishable supplies including a disinfecting solution spray as well as a coupon that is to be redeemed for the perishable components near the time of use. This kit has all of the materials necessary for 30 students working in groups of three. Teacher's Manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are included.
