Call for Blood Sample Recipes

The AABB Press needs your help. We are currently developing Blood Banker Favorites: A Collection of Best Recipes for Blood Sample Preparation—formatted as if it were a traditional “cookbook.” (For example, recipes for preparing a large sample volume could fall into a category titled “Cooking for a Crowd.”) The book will be a valuable resource at the bench, and fun to use as well.

I am looking for your favorite “recipe”—one that you know works every time and that you would be willing to share. Please 1) review the categories below, 2) download the recipe template, 3) type your recipe into the template, and 4) email completed forms by December 7 to If your recipe is selected it will be published with your name as contributor, just like your favorite school or church cookbook. Feel free to send more than one recipe!

Don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity to be part of a book that will be referenced for years to come!  Thank you in advance for considering this request.
