Results of RBC antibody identification will name the specific antibody or antibodies present in the blood of the person tested. If the antibody identified is considered clinically significant, then it will need to be taken into account with each transfusion and/or pregnancy. If an antibody is not considered clinically significant, then it is not likely to cause a transfusion reaction in the person or cause hemolytic disease of the newborn. For blood transfusions, it is not necessary to find compatible blood if the antibody identified is not likely to cause a transfusion reaction (is not clinically significant).
