Blood products and their uses

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Blood transfusions save lives; however, unlike manufactured pharmaceuticals, they rely on blood donations from other animals. Component transfusion therapy ensures the most efficient usage of this precious resource. This talk will show attendees the different blood products which can be produced from a single blood donation, what products are available here in Australia, and which products are best used for what situations. We will also cover which animals would be considered for blood donor programs in-house.
