Blood , an important adjunct for cancer treatment is available as needed with all the components separated.
Blood Component therapy, using the blood cell separator, in the supportive treatment of high dose Chemotherapy, was introduced in to India for first time in 1978. Blood gamma irradiator was installed in 2003. Chemiluminescence testing for transfusion transmissible infections for HIV, HBV and HCV was introduced in 2016. Walk-in cold storage rooms for blood components were installed in 2019. Automation for Immuno-haematology testing was introduced in 2019. Chute system for transport of blood samples and blood components was installed in 2019. A vehicle for blood donation drives was inaugurated in 2019.
To enhance the wellbeing of patients and save lives by providing safest possible blood, by providing appropriate therapeutic Apheresis services, and by promoting research and education programs in transfusion medicine. We aim to make blood donation 100 percent voluntary without any replacement donors. We strive to encourage appropriate clinical use of blood and blood components. We ensure stable supply of safe blood and related products wherever they are needed.
Dedicated to quality, integrity, service, and excellence in everything we do
