Blood Transfusion Services (BTS) is the vital part of the modern health care system without which efficient medical care is impossible. It is a complex organisation requiring careful designing and management. The aim of a Blood Transfusion Service (BTS) is to provide effective blood and blood components, which are as safe as possible and adequate to meet the patients need. Our department uses stringent quality control protocols to ensure timely supply of the safest possible blood and blood components. We also make a stringent quality control policy which is compliant to all existing statutory provisions of the Drugs and cosmetic act 1940 and amendments, other directives from Drug Controller General of India, National Blood Policy, NACO guidelines on HIV screening and NABH guidelines. Blood is carefully screened for transfusion transmitted infections (HBsAg, HBcAb, HCV, HIV I& II- using ELISA Technology along with RPR and Malarial Antigen Testing).
