Type AB- is the rarest of all the blood types, with just 1% of the population having it. AB- donors are the universal plasma and platelet donor, meaning any patient can receive their plasma and platelets. AB- donors can help change the world by donating platelets and plasma (through a special automated procedure).
Type AB- donors can receive negative types: A, B, AB and O.
