AABB Soliciting Public Comments
The AABB is soliciting public comments from the industry on the proposed 1st edition of Standards for Molecular Testing Laboratories. Comments must be provided by January 30, 2008.
The proposed standards include requirements for using molecular methods to predict ABO, Rh, and other blood group antigens on red cells, platelets, and neutrophils. Comments are also being solicited on quality system requirements, operational standards, and the inventory resources necessary for the identification of targeted nucleotides that encode red cell, platelet, and granulocyte antigens.
