Complimentary Spanish-Language Standards for Blood Collection and Transfusion Now Available

November 20, 2020

AABB is pleased to offer complimentary access to a new Spanish-language publication Estándares Fundamentales para Recolección y Transfusión de Sangre (Estándares) – that introduces the AABB Standards process and helps institutions take the first step to incorporate quality concepts in the blood bank. The Estándares are a direct translation of the Fundamental Standards for Blood Collection and Transfusion (Fundamental Standards), 1st edition, released by AABB in 2018 and created by the Global Standards Committee. 
Notably, there is no accreditation program associated with the Estándares — they are for educational purposes only. AABB’s Global Standards Committee developed the Fundamental Standards based on input from internationally recognized experts, public comment, and the scientific literature on techniques and applications with an emphasis on resource-limited regions. Estándares Fundamentales para Recolección y Transfusión de Sangre is available in the AABB Store
