    A computer scheme for a large antenatal serology service is described. A primary request form (for mother, father or child) has been developed. Standard reports are produced by the computer and are issued with a tear-off slip which should accompany subsequent specimens. Complicated reports are made by special letter. An instruction booklet is issued to all users. Information on patients and clinically significant antibodies is held in a special computer file and is regularly updated. The system provides an efficient and reliable day-to-day service and readily accessible data for retrospective research. A brief note on the computer elements of the system is provided.
