The Global Standard for Medical Products of Human Origin
ISBT 128 is the global standard for the terminology, identification, labeling, and information transfer of medical products of human origin (including blood, cell, tissue, and organ products) across international borders and disparate health care systems. It is used in more than 70 countries across six continents and is widely endorsed.
The standard has been designed to ensure the highest levels of accuracy, safety, and efficiency for the benefit of donors, patients, and ISBT 128 licensed facilities worldwide.
Featuring a unique, highly flexible, and comprehensive coding method for every collected product, ISBT 128 provides international consistency to support the transfer, transfusion, or transplantation of blood, cells, tissues and organs.
The acronym ISBT was originally derived from the important role played by the International Society of Blood Transfusion in the development of the standard. Today it expands as International Standard for Blood and Transplant. The number 128 reflects the 128 characters of the ISO/IEC 646 7-bit character set.
