Tips for buying Blood Grouping System

  1. The blood grouping systems should perform ABO forward and/or reverse grouping and Rh detection. The following additional donor tests should be considered based on specific needs of the site: syphilis, hepatitis B surface antigen, anti-hepatitis B core antigen, anti-hepatitis C virus, anti HIV types 1 and 2, and anti human T-cell lymph tropic virus types I and II.
  2. The following functions should be carried out by these blood grouping systems: dilution, agitation, and centrifugation.
  3. Preferred automated blood type analyzer systems are those that are robotics compatible. In general, automated blood grouping systems should provide data processing with minimal human intervention.
  4. It is worthwhile to get a fully automated blood type analyzer system only for larger transfusion centers, where the labor savings and the lower cost per test will justify the expense.
  5. Smaller transfusion laboratories with limited budgets find semi-automated blood grouping systems, which have components that can be purchased separately, to be an affordable alternative. These blood grouping systems provide rapid sample processing and computer-managed data handling and interpretation.
  6. Facilities that are using a subsystem for detecting and analyzing agglutination patterns can affect the cost of a blood grouping analyzer.
  7. Storage space is an important issue for donor centers, which accumulate a large number of paper records and must store blood donor histories indefinitely. These facilities should aim at saving space and allowing rapid retrieval of records using a storage system, such as microfilm or optical disc.
  8. Blood grouping analyzer results can be downloaded to a computer storage system if the computer interfaces with blood grouping systems.
  9. For inputting blood grouping analyzer test data, verifying testing accuracy, and maintaining quality control, calibration, proficiency testing, and patient files, it is essential to have an effective interface to the existing laboratory information system or the hospital's central computer system.
  10. Facilities should ensure blood type analyzer results confidentiality by taking the following precautions: adjusting monitor positions so only authorized personnel can view the screen, using passwords and identifiers, having repair technicians sign a confidentiality waiver, refraining from using email to transfer patient data, performing random audits, putting up firewalls, and using access restriction and encryption.
  11. There are standards for handling the security of health information, for giving patients control over the disclosure of their health records, and for establishing specific identifiers for healthcare providers, health plans, employers, and other individuals. Compliance is required only for electronic health information; for paper-record it is voluntary.
