    She probably just had O RHD negative, which is the universal blood type that anyone can have.

    An if they were planning to use her immunity from the alien infection then surely that would required the isolate the exact immune response from Chloe blood.

    You just have to ignore it. Stargate (and a lot of TV shows for that matter) has always been terrible when it comes to medicine.

    I'm guessing that either they had compatible blood types, or the infection cured any side effect. Either way though they really should have pointed it out I think.

    ABO aren't the only antigens that need to be crossmatched, and since they transfused whole blood I doubt a severe hemolytic reaction would not occur. Lotsa and lotsa blood proteins can act as antigens.

    That's where the alien stuff in her system comes in.

    They're both the same blood type: BLUE

    It was probably more of an INFECT, than a transference of blood. They just needed a quantity to infect quickly. I didn't really see any vein to vein stuff, although it was implied.

    I've long ago given up on the accuracy of medical aspects on Stargate, as the writers do what they want. And yes, a tossaway line would have meant this thread would be moot, but it wasn't done, so we can come here and quibble

    So much for a more realistic series. But it is a science fiction show. So I really think it is a moot point to have to be explained. Sometimes we just have to use our imagination.

    This bothered me too.
    I'm just going to assume that they both happened to have the exact same blood type.

    For once, I agree with Jel. It was incredibly stupid, but then again, TV shows have never been smart when it comes to science, and that includes medicine. You just have to chalk it up to Chloe and Scott getting INCREDIBLY lucky. Sometimes the luck swings bad (and Riley dies), and sometimes it swings good (and a blood transfusion works).

    Not to mention the other luck of the gate kawooshing at the exact right moment the alien plant surged forward to strike at them, hehe.

    I figured either:

    (1) Scott is AB+ (universal recipient)
    (2) Chloe is O- (universal donor)
    (3) They have other blood types, but they match (both are A-, for example)
    or
    (my favorite)
    (4) Blue Alien blood makes everything better

    Really, is this any worse than all the other bad biology we see in science fiction TV shows every day? My favorite is when giving someone some random injection of DNA changes their phenotype. And then they get "cured" by being given some more random DNA.

    So many good answers on this one! It´s just something we have to use our imagination and inner logic, I think SciFi fan´s have both.

    Scott and Chloe are actually long lost brother and sister...

    What kind of equipment is needed to type blood? Did they actually bring something like that with them in the rush to get off Icarus. She's a med tech, right? Would she even know how to do this?

    That part isn't unrealistic - there are easy kits for doing preliminary typing (ABO, RH, etc.) that we use in biology labs, so yeah, TJ can do if my biology undergrads can do it. She is a heck of lot more capable than the lot of them, I'm sure!

    Edited to add:
    Here is a home kit you can buy for $9.50
    http://www.amazon.com/Blood-Type-Eld.../dp/B000FV1K26

    The ones we use in bio lab are a bit more advanced than this, but not much. A card, a lancet, some wipes, there you have it. The antigens for the reaction are bonded to the card. You could carry a hundred of these in a very small space, and type everyone on Destiny in 1/2 hour or so.

    I doubt she would have had the proper tests to do that.

    Military dogtags have, besides the name of the military officer, basic medical information including BLOOD TYPE of the respective person. Even if Chloe doesn't know her blood type, TJ would, being the ship's medic (with the info provided via stones).
