Blood group testing should always be done with the antibody screen. It is of no Clinical use without.
Rh (antibody) testing is performed because the difference in Rh blood group types between an Rh-negative mother and her Rh-positive baby can lead to hemolytic disease (a severe condition in which there is breakdown of the red blood cells) of the newborn. If an Rh-negative mother carries an Rh-positive fetus, she may develop antibodies against the Rh component of the baby's red blood cells. These antibodies could cause hemolytic disease of an Rh-positive baby in subsequent pregnancies.
