  1. Can anyone help me with finding what can and cannot be stored with blood products?? I've looked through AABB and FDA and didn't see anything special about requirements. I know it's BB knowledge to store your crossmatch units on a shelf, autologous on a different shelf, etc. Are there any written rules? The reason I'm asking is we are starting transplants and they need a refrigerator to store things in. HELP!!
  2. I don't think so, but I am told it is a requirement to validate the software every 2 years (mini-validation). I am still searching for answers.
  3. When getting a new software (ex. SoftBank, SafeTrace etc), is biannual validation required? Does anyone (CAP, AABB, TJC, FDA) require that your computer system be validated every 2 years? TIA!
  4. When getting new software (ex. Softbank), is it necessary to validate every 2 years? Who requires this?
  5. Hey everyone, Our Serofuge 2002 just died and we are looking for a new one. I've looked at several but want to hear everyone else's experiences! Pros and Cons of whatever you use. Thanks in advance, Lindsey
  6. Hey everyone! I was curious about how everyone is implementing the new standard to start including Group O and AB plasma into the utilization review? Or if you have already done so...what is your Transfusion Service doing?
  7. I've seen a few threads about doing QC for gel, but was wondering if anyone was willing to share their procedure with me? We currently do ABO in tube and screens in IgG gel cards. We are looking to switch to ORTHO's ABD Reverse Gel cards and still do our screens using the 0.8% Surgiscreen. Any opinions on best option for QC? I see where some are using the ORTHO Confidence System? Some are using their Immucor CorQC tube reagents. What's the best way to switch and with what reagents for QC? Also for retypes, use the Ortho ABD card? I'm assuming this has to be QC'd as well? What about Cord Blood? Use the Ortho ABD cards? Does this detect weak D?
