anti-D antibodies
Type blank is considered the universal donor bc this type has blank therefore it cant be rejected by any antibodes
a specfic type of micros that requires oxygen to survive, but requires environments containong lower levels of oxygen than in atmosphere
why did we put put a dish the in candle jar
bc streptococci are microaerophilic
these microns cannot break down hydrogen peroxide and surviv in normal con. od O2
a catalase breaks down
H2O2 into at and 02
