Blood Bank

As platelets have a short shelf life and the highest contamination risk of any transfusable blood component, reliable quality control methods are essential to protect patients from the risk of septic reactions.

With quality control testing solutions from bioMérieux, blood banks can ensure the safety and efficacy of platelets, extend shelf life up to 7 days, cut down on costly discards and improve availability of life-saving resources.
