Standards for Immunohematology Reference Laboratories, 11th Edition – Print

Product Code: 193125

ISBN: 978-1-56395-357-6

The 11th edition of Standards for Immunohematology Reference Laboratories relies on a matrix of quality management system and detailed operational requirements, such as those defining minimum antisera resources.

Significant changes in the 11th edition include:

  • New standard 1.6 requires that facilities have policies, processes and procedures to address continuity in the event that operations are at risk. This would not include inventory resource levels, and not what would be considered a disaster or emergency.
  • The inventory resource requirements in reference standards 2.2A and 2.2B have been adjusted with the movement of over 20 resources that previously appeared in reference standard 2.2A to 2.2B. Accredited laboratories will now have to reach 100% for reference standard 2.2A and 50% of reference standard 2.2B.
  • New subnumber 11 has been added to standard 5.3.2 which requires that cold reactive antibodies are now a required serologic capability to ensure that laboratories have processes to investigate antibodies reacting at various phases.
