    Abstract:

    Blood transfusions are often an important component of medical care for many patients. We studied the differences between classical phenotyping and compared the results with the RBC genotyping using the Beadchip technology. 40 patients' specimens were involved in this study. It was concluded that the RBC genotyping is the far superior and accurate method to provide the best transfusion care to patients.

    Objectives:

    1. Understand transfusion medicine basics.

    2. Describe various plasma and platelet products and the NYS DOH guidelines of transfusion medicine patient testing.

    3. Understand the phases of the regulatory process.
