  1. We use the BCTA (Barcode Enabled Transfusion Administration) module in Meditech.
  2. We just switched to the MaxQ MTP coolers and love them! My validations showed it held temps for 24 hours, even when opening the lid every 15 minutes for the first 2 hours and hourly after that. Plus, we filled the cooler with warm FFP (4 units @37C) and cold RBC (4 units @4C). The cooler cooled down the FFP units to 6C within 3 hours. The RBC'S never went above 5C.
  3. We use 1-6 for coolers, however, the BT-10 only shows breach above 10 so, there's that. We place a NIST certified thermometer in the cooler to show that it is 6 or below upon return. We do not scan these units with the temp gun. It's 1-10 for anything returned not in a cooler.
  4. We use one from Fisher. It is certified and we replace it every 2 years when the certificate expires. I am curious, for those who have the 15 minute limit, did you validate that in all scenarios in your hospital?
  5. I believe he is asking about blood grouping. That is what the title of the message suggest, "Use of Negative Control in Blood Grouping." I'm so confused.
  6. I don't follow. Like you said, all the available automated platforms incorporate a monoclonal control in blood typing. Are you suggesting removing the monoclonal control from the blood grouping test on automated platforms?
  7. We use MEDITECH MAGIC 5.6.7. Long ago, we started entering our Immucor Cell Panel lots into the QC function, along with the individual donor cell reactions. Over the years, our database has grown to where, every month, we only have to enter 1 or 2 new donor cell, out of the 16 on the panel, into the database when entering the new months donor panel. When we have a Passive D, we enter the cell reactions from the panel in the antibody ID field, which stores the reactions indefinitely in MEDITECH. That allows us to not have to keep the antigrams for passive D's. Everything is in the computer and
  8. Though it's not FDA, this webinar was put out by CAP and may be helpful addressing issues of data security and ways of submitting. https://www.cap.org/calendar/virtual-cap-inspections-two-laboratories-shared-perspectives CAP Virtual Inspection Webinar
  9. What methodology are you using? Are you using tube reactions, Gel technology, or solid phase? If tube, what enhancement medium: PEG, LISS, Albumin? My vote is for an auto antibody, either cold or warm. I would doubt that these are antibodies against high frequency antigens showing up in the proportions you describe.
  10. Hopefully ARC will change their policy and allow you all to stock CCP. That was a life-saver for keeping up with the orders. We fill orders within minutes now instead of days.
  11. We do not use ARC. Our supplier is South Texas Blood and Tissue Center. They have done an excellent job recruiting donors and have an abundant supply of CCP. As for AB units, they have been able to keep up with the demand. Only once during this pandemic have we needed to give A to and AB. That is how we would handle the situation if necessary.
  12. When the FDA issued the EUA on August 23, 2020, we started stocking convalescent plasma in house from our supplier. We fill the orders once they come in. Before that, it was a pain. Are you able to make a stock order with ARC for, say, 5 O's, 5 A's, and 2 B's? Our supplier prefers it that way here in South Texas.
  13. I just finished listening to this webinar. Excellent Job @Malcolm Needs. Your south London accent was not at all distracting and your presentation of the material was sufficiently thorough and relevant. Hopefully I get to meet you face to face one day.
  14. The product under question was thawed FFP, not thawed CRYO.
  15. I just saw this seminar being offered by Bio-Rad with our own, infamous, Malcolm Needs as the presenter. I registered and thought I'd pass the word to all of us here.
