Why Get Tested?
When to Get Tested?
When your doctor wants to find out the cause of your haemolytic anaemia; when you have had a blood transfusion recently and are experiencing symptoms of a transfusion reaction; or when a newborn shows signs of haemolytic disease of the foetus and neonate (HDFN).
The test is performed on a sample of blood obtained from a vein in the arm using a needle. This is a process which may be referred to as ‘venepuncture’.
