OVERVIEW

Transfusion medicine is a multidisciplinary area concerned with the proper usage of blood and blood components in the treatment of human diseases. Our Blood Bank has been providing dedicated services for almost  22 years.

The motto of the Department of Transfusion medicine is to provide “the right blood to the right patient at the right time”. We are the first in Coimbatore to start Apheresis (collecting only the required blood component) collection since 2003.

According to the principles of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), strict adherence to quality control at all phases of Blood Donor Selection, Blood Collection, Screening for Transfusion Transmissible Infections (TTI) and processing of blood, and serological procedures for grouping and typing of blood are followed.
