Blood Supply Chain

Blood transfusion is an area of some risk - inaccurate identification can lead to potentially fatal errors. Blood bags are routinely bar coded with their type, but when bags are issued from the blood bank, an additional barcoded label identifying the patient is attached. The label is then scanned along with the patient’s bar-coded wristband before the blood is administered, providing an automatic compatibility safety check in line with the EU Directive 2002/98/EC.
