Council of Europe Pub., 2002 - Blood - 263 pages
In this 8th edition, chapter 12 on red cells obtained by aphaeresis has been completely overhauled. Where necessary, chapters have been revised in order to take into account what can be achieved with new technology. For example, in Chapter 1 on selection of donors the requirements for aphaeresis donors have been updated. The Guide to the preparation, use and quality assurance of blood components will be of interest to blood transfusion centres, legislators, health personnel and all those working in the field of blood transfusion.
