Pre-Transfusion Testing and Blood use

Compatibility Testing Department



When a patient needs transfusion, a request for the blood is sent to the compatibility testing department. Here the patients blood is tested against that of the donor unit to ensure that there is compatibility between the two and when patient is transfused there will be no adverse reactions to transfusion. It is only when the blood is compatible that it is issued to the patient.
