We calculate Blanchfield pairings of 3-manifolds. In particular, we give a formula for the Blanchfield pairing of a fibred 3-manifold and we give a new proof that the Blanchfield pairing of a knot can be expressed in terms of a Seifert matrix.

2010 Math. Subj. Class. 57M25, 57M27.

Keywords: Blanchfield pairing, 3-manifold, Seifert form.
