Component Blood Bank

At Holy Family Hospital, the Component Blood Bank separates each unit of blood into the following components:

  • Concentrated Human Red Blood Corpuscles (Packed Cells)
  • Fresh Frozen Plasma
  • Platelet Concentrate
  • Cryoprecipitate
  • Saline Washed Packed Cells
Whole blood is separated into these components within six hours of collection under strict aseptic conditions. After the components are separated, each component is stored at appropriate temperatures in constantly monitored freezers and refrigerators for a specified period of time.
