When building psoralen-treated platelets into your computer product code database, what special feature will you be creating to capture the fact that these "illuminated" platelets are equivalent to "irradiated" platelets?

Hi Blood Bankers,

 

We are trying to prepare for Psoralen treated platelets - I thought that I had built them in my LIS but now I have received new codes from the Blood Supplier - I initially built  ISBT codes E7001, E7002....etc...to E7008  (4 plain and 4 irradiated).

 

I now received new codes from the Blood Supplier and they are codes E8440 through E8344 and more.

 

My question - does anyone know if the E7001 was ever actually used?  I have yet to receive any of these products but I am trying to get ready for the FDA guidelines and mandate that will be coming eventually.

 

Thank you.

Maryann

You should be able to check with your blood supplier to see what codes they will be using.  We use the Red Cross and have only built E8340, E8341, E8342, E8343, and E8344 thus far.

The ARC uses E7001, E7002, E7003... are PAS platelets only, not psoralen treated. We have yet to build the psoralen treated product codes into our system.

We designed and ordered special labels that we attach to our psoralen platelets.  The ISBT codes for our products are E8331, E8332, E8333, E8334, E8335.

Place this label on all Psoralen-treated (Pathogen Reduced) INTERCEPT Platelets to remind the care provider that they are equivalent to IRRADIATED and to store at room temp.
