Abstract

The primary goal in transfusion medicine is to promote high standards of quality in all aspects of transfusion, including production, management, and transfusion of blood components. To achieve this goal, a transfusion service quality management system should be established. Such a system should include several organizational structures, responsibilities, policies, processes, procedures, and resources with provided specifications and regulations. In this review, we summarize the current knowledge and practices regarding the quality management of hematology tests applied to the donor selection and production of blood components, including red blood cells, platelets, fresh frozen plasma, and cryoprecipitates in the field at blood centers.
