Hi, it could be different. ABO grouping is a test performed to determine an individual's blood type. It is based on the premise that individuals have antigens on their red blood cells (RBCs) that correspond to the 4 main blood groups: A, B, O, or AB. Individuals have antibodies (isohemagglutinins) in their plasma that are directed against blood group antigens that their RBCs lack  These antibodies (isohemagglutinins) form early in life. ABO antigens are expressed on RBCs, platelets, and endothelial cells and are present in body fluids. Kindly visit nearby laboratory to know your blood group....
