  2. We used to CMV test our units and not add an additive solution. Our inventory (I suspect like most) is 100% leukoreduced, so that takes care of the CMV for us. We also allow Adsol units now, so we can easily get these from our supplier, just a regular O Neg less than 7 days old.
  3. Easy, give group O only. We used to allow directed donations and we would do a back type on the baby. We stopped allowing directed donations years ago and only give O Neg to our neonates.
  4. We have two IH 1000. BioRad has been great to work with. They are workhorses. They are complicated and tend to have a fair amount of downtime. Many years ago when we first introduced automation it was solid phase. A lot of our patients were then coming up D positive (D neg history) as the methodology was a lot more sensitive than tube. The same thing happened a few years ago when we switched to gel. You'll also pick up more colds and junk with gel. Overall we're happy. We might consider an IH 500 someday for the titers.
