January 04, 2022

The AABB Standards for Molecular Testing for Red Cell, Platelet and Neutrophil Antigens, Sixth Edition, will take effect Oct. 1, 2022. The Molecular Testing (MT) Standards Committee hopes to engage members in developing the sixth edition and asks interested parties to submit comments to help shape these updates. The Committee will review all responses when it meets to prepare the sixth edition in February 2022. Please submit comments by Friday, Jan. 7, 2022.

AABB will continue to hold the 60-day open comment period following the release of the proposed MT Standards, currently scheduled to begin in February 2022. Submitting comments prior to the Jan. 7 deadline will help guide the MT Committee as it works on the next edition.
