4. Place the microscope slide on the slide warming box. Rock the box gently and observe the slide for clumping. If the blood clumps in the anti-M serum, you have M antigens on your red blood cells. If the blood clumps in the anti-N serum, you have N antigens on your red blood cells. If both clump, you have both M and N antigens on your red blood cells.

5. Place your microscope slide into the bio-hazard container.

Record the type of antigens that you have on your red blood cells below.
