Blood Typing

The Blood Typing Simulation is a virtual lab that teaches learners how to test and identify an unknown blood type from a given sample.

Unique ways to use this simulation

There are many ways you can use this simulation. For example:

  • Students test “blood samples” to figure out someone’s blood type.
  • Students are asked to compare different blood samples to determine the mother/father of a child.
  • Test students on the use of lab equipment and procedures.
  • The patient’s blood sample can be set by the instructor or randomized per student to support multiple attempts.
