“Transfusion-Transmitted Diseases, Part 1”
Discussion of Tests Used to Screen Donors
Recorded September 2011
This Blood Bank Guy video contains details about our efforts to prevent the transmission of infectious agents through transfusion. This video, part 1 of 2 on the topic, contains details about the technologies used in screening blood for infectious diseases.
The Blood Bank Guy Videos were recorded at various times between 2010 and 2014. All videos were as current as I could make them at the time of the recording, but I cannot guarantee that they are 100% up to date. For more information on many topics covered in these videos, please see either the Blood Bank Guy Essentials Podcast or the Blood Bank Guy Essentials Blog!
