  1. Hello Transfusion Community, I am reaching out to see if any blood bankers are interested in being part of an 'Advisory Panel' to provide feedback on new products, existing products, and to generally help us better understand your needs and challenges. If interested, please email me @ willm@packmaxq.com. Thank you, Will Mitchell MaxQ Research
  2. 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!
  3. All of the transfusion services that I have worked at before have had separate fridges/freezers for blood products, reagents, and specimens, however, I've recently started as supervisor in a new facility and fridge and freezer space is at a premium. The FDA, AABB, and CAP all talk about segregation requirements for blood products (autologous vs, allogeneic, crossmatched vs. available, viral-tested positive vs. viral-tested negative) however I can't find any specifics on what constitutes "segregated"- other than a mention of physically or electronically segregated in regards to autologous products. Are we talking separate shelves or would bins/divided and labeled sections on the same shelf be adequate? From my training/background having crossmatched/available/autologous products in separate bins on the same shelf is acceptable, but reagents should never be on the same shelf as live blood products (as opposed to dead/expired products used for validation and training). What is everyone's thought/experience with this topic? And have any of you found any guidance in the literature/regs? Thanks!!
  4. What do folks know about storage of fecal transplant material? I've been told that we are ordering some and the OR clinical director wants to store it in the back-up freezer for tissue?. Does anyone know if this is necessarily prohibited? If so, by whom and what is the standard? Thanks!
