Kleihauer-Betke Test

Kleihauer-Betke Test

The Kleihauer-Betke (KB) test is a blood test that measures the amount of fetal hemoglobin transferred from a fetus to the mother’s bloodstream. It is usually done for the purpose of determining the RhoGam dose. This test is used to predict certain types of pregnancy complications, particularly after a mother has suffered a traumatic injury. Kleihauer-Betke Test is usually performed on Rhesus-negative mothers to determine the required dose of Rho (D) Immnuglobulin (RhIg) to inhibit the formation of Rh antibodies in the mother and prevent Rh disease in future Rh-positive children.
