Does anyone have a standard that you use for how long Blood Bank antisera and reagent red cells can be kept out of storage? The manufacturer's inserts for Immucor state to store at 1-10 C when not in use, but nothing in terms of the maximum time refrigerated reagents can be kept at room temp. We rotate our racks every 8 hours. Thanks for your input!
I have a deep and sincere hatred for our reagent QC forms but I'm also trapped in the box and unsure of how to revise them and still capture all of the information I need (not that it's easily communicated with the ones we have now...). None of our QC is tracked in the LIS - it's all paper forms for documentation. Is anyone else willing to share what they have to give me some inspiration? I would be extremely grateful !! Secondly, how do all of you set up your QC program for things that are done every day without fail and others that are done for day of use only?
