The blood bank of Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute & Research Centre is a NABH accredited service with the motto of “Safety at all cost”. The Blood bank has, therefore, invested heavily on haemovigilance and quality of it’s products. Every unit of blood is converted into components to economize on usage and return back the maximum benefit to the community.
The blood is tested at two levels including “Nucleic Acid Testing” to preclude almost completely any chance of Transfusion Transmissible disease. To ensure safety further, all units meant for use in susceptible group are irradiated. The transfusion service also lays great emphasis on donor care and strictly follows donor selection to ensure quality of blood collected.
Issue of blood is carried out after grouping and cross matching on an automated platform to improve precision and accuracy. The Blood Bank also provides an excellent facility for harvesting of stem cells and Cryopreservation.
We do all of this with the slogan of “Service with Smile” in a pleasant ambience through extremely well trained and courteous staff.
