Whole blood is human blood from a standard blood donation. Whole blood is collected from IRB consented healthy human donors in HemaCare’s FDA-registered collection centers. Unless otherwise specified, whole blood is collected in a CPD collection bag and specimen samples are collected in EDTA tubes. HemaCare can collect whole blood in any GMP-compliant commercially available collection bag or tubes with anticoagulants per your specifications. HemaCare can perform collections that meet your specific criteria and/or follow your protocols.
HemaCare’s GMP-compliant qualification requires implementation of SOPs and formal quality systems that result in reduced variability and risk. Specifically, our GMP-compliant products require comprehensive employee training, competency assessments, and documentation of training as well as stringent material traceability and equipment logs. Additional quality performance testing and monitoring of quality indicators ensure industry-leading quality and stability.
Use whole blood unit or tubes immediately upon receipt.
Testing: Donors are tested for HBV, HCV, HIV, HTLV, WNV, Trypanasoma cruzi, and Syphilis.
