Today, when you walk into a Modern Blood Bank asking for blood, you are very likely to be asked “Which Component?” Days are gone when only Whole blood was the prescribed transfusion practice. Nowadays, blood is separated into various types of blood components using the technique of centrifugation. At our highly modernised Component separation laboratory in the Blood Bank all the collected whole blood units are separated into different components to meet the patient requirements.
1. Reducing the frequency and severity of Febrile Non-Hemolytic Transfusion Reactions (FNHTRs).
2. Reducing the risk of cytomegalovirus (CMV) transmission.
3. Reducing the risk of HLA-alloimmunization and platelet-refractoriness.
