Blood is a red color fluid that contains continuously renewing cells like red blood cells (RBC) which renew every 4 months, platelets that renew every 8 to 10 days, and also white blood cells (WBC). The cells are swimming in the liquid part of the blood, the plasma. Adult blood volume is 5 to 6 litters. The blood carries oxygen by RBC from the lungs into the tissues to generate energy. It carries out carbon dioxide to be expired through the lungs. WBC plays a key role in immunity. Platelets and plasma are responsible for stopping the bleeding from wounds by clotting of the blood.
The donor gets a medical examination including medical history, hemoglobin estimation, weight check and blood group determination. The donated blood is routinely screened for hepatitis B, hepatitis C, HIV, malaria, syphilis by ICT method. We perform testing to determine the blood type of the donor and screen the blood for transmissible infections for patient’s safety, and finally cross match with the patient’s blood to identify compatible blood products for blood transfusions. All our materials used in blood donation are strictly sterile and disposable.
The collected Whole Blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate it into different components. The whole blood packed Red Blood Cells (RBC) are refrigerated with an anti-coagulant solution (CPDA-1) to extend shelf life, typically to 35 days. The plasma is frozen promptly and labeled as Fresh Frozen Plasma; it is stored at –40°C or colder and is stored for one year. The platelets are stored in an incubator at temperature 20-24°C with agitation, and have a shelf life of five days.
