Difference between Coagulation and Agglutination?

Answer

One of the differences between coagulation and agglutination is that coagulation is generally considered to be a normal process. If a person has a cut that bleeds, the body goes through a process to clot the blood to prevent a person from bleeding to death. Agglutination is considered an undesirable process where red blood cells clump together due to a reaction between antibodies and antigens. This can happen in a mismatched transfusion.
