This section consists of documents that pertain to plasma derivatives.
ISBT 128 defines Plasma Derivatives as, "A product that contains concentrated fractions of plasma proteins that have been separated using physico-chemical or other fractionation processes. It is made from pooling plasma from large numbers of donors and is traced based on the lot or batch number of the pooled product.”
It is recommended that those products for which ABO blood groups is not relevant (e.g., Rh Immune Globulin or Gamma Globulin) be labeled with GS1 bar codes. Conversely, plasma derivatives for which the ABO blood group is relevant should be labeled with ISBT 128.
This example plan was meant to be comprehensive, and not all steps may be needed by all facilities. Therefore, facilities should use it as a guide or checklist of things to consider rather than attempting to follow it precisely.
