The typing O indicates the state of having neither A nor B antigens. The classic test method is by agglutination.

CPT 86901: (RH) This test is known as Rh type. The test determines whether a patient is "positive" or "negative" by identifying the presence (Rh positive) or absence (Rh negative) of Rh antigens on the RBC surface. The classic test method is by agglutination.
