Indirect Antiglobulin is a blood test that looks for antibodies in your bloodstream. Antibodies are proteins that fight as a response to any foreign germs, or tissues. These antigens are responsible for destroying your healthy blood cells which is why it is important to know about them beforehand.
Indirect Antiglobulin is also known as the Indirect Coombs test, Coombs test (indirect), blood antibody screening, and IAT. Your doctor will recommend this test before a blood transfusion to know if there is the presence of certain antibodies that can harm the donor’s red blood cells is very crucial.
If there are no antibodies, the blood transfusion is safe to perform. In the case of antibodies, the blood cells will clump together and result in cell destruction. It is also important to get this test done when you are pregnant. In case there is the presence of antigens, your body can give out a reaction that often turns out to be hemolytic disease.
