AABB

An important blood banking organization formerly known as the “American Association of Blood Banks.” Founded in 1947 in the United States, AABB is now an international association of people and facilities involved in collection, processing, and transfusion of blood and progenitor cells. They facilitate inspections of blood banks and donor centers, publish Standards to help member facilities comply with federal guidelines, and interact frequently with the Food and Drug Administration on behalf of the blood banking community. The organization’s official name is now just the abbreviation, “AABB.”
