Blood transfusion is an essential therapeutic intervention and is a vital part of the health care service. We all may need blood in an emergency and some
of us need regular transfusions. The purpose of a transfusion is to provide the blood & blood components that will improve the physiological status of
the patient. Increasing demand in the field of transfusion medicine has necessitated enforcing measures to ensure quality of Blood and its products.
Apheresis is a procedure carried out to harvest a particular component and returning the rest of the blood to the donor by an automated machine. Five
apheresis units are functioning in our blood bank. This procedure should be carried out only in a blood bank licensed for this purpose. Facilities
available for Platelet pheresis (single donor platelets) and Leukopheresis from whole blood using continuous and intermittent flow cell separators.
Therapeutic cytopheresis is done only at the written request of the patient´s physician with in the blood bank or preferably in the ward depending on the
patient´s clinical condition for Autologous and Allogenic Hematopoietic stem cell harvesting and cryopreservation.
