Blood transfusion.: Historically o negative was spoken of as being the universal donor. However, there are minor antigens such as the mn group that influence compatibility. By current standards a type and cross (to determine compatibility) is always done before any transfusion, and the concept of the universal donor is now somewhat out of date.
