Molecular methods can be applied to overcome the limitations of classical hemagglutination for blood grouping. Both methodologies, in conjunction, are beneficial when attempting to identify antigen incompatibilities between a pregnant woman and the fetus. They are undoubtedly useful not only for diagnosing an Rh incompatibility but also for guiding therapeutic options to prevent Rh immunization. Molecular genotyping constitutes a supplemental technique to hemagglutination tests for the determination of the true blood group antigens in cases of warm-type autoimmune hemolytic anemia and polytransfused patients. It is also a useful tool for the selection of compatible blood units for alloimmunized patients. RHD genotyping in individuals with altered expression of the D antigen may be better than agglutination assays in inferring the appropriate phenotype when serology is inconclusive for deciding transfusion therapy or anti-D prophylaxis.
