Opposite actually: Aspiring is an "anti" coagulate. Which means it will make your blood thinner or less likely to clot/coagulate.

Can I take aspirin before a blood typing test?

Yes: you can take an aspirin prior to blood typing test. Why are you taking aspirin? are other tests being done at the same time as the blood typing test? if so, need to confirm that aspirin would be ok
