Blood Banks

A Blood bank is a spot or association or unit or establishment or different game plans made by such association, unit or organization for doing all or any of the activities for gathering, apheresis, stockpiling, handling and conveyance of blood drawn from benefactors and additionally for preparation,storage and dispersion of blood segments.

Apheresis is the procedure by which blood drawn from a giver, in the wake of isolating plasma or platelets, or leucocytes, is re-transfused all the while into the said contributor.

A permit is required to run a blood donation center. Without permit to run a blood donation center is an offense under Drugs and Cosmetics Act 1940 and Rules made thereunder.

As indicated by the Central Drug Standard Control Organization (CDSCO), India has 2,760 authorized blood donation centers. A 2012 World Health Organization (WHO) report said nine million of 12 million blood units required every year in India were gathered through intentional gift. There are three sorts of blood donation centers — government, private and those kept running by NGOs.

Health Ministry permits transfer of blood between Blood Banks

The Ministry of Health & Family Welfare has identified two major initiatives towards better utilisation of blood and blood components, as part of its commitment to ensure safe blood and enhanced access to blood products, on the recommendation of the National Blood Transfusion Council.

The initial step is allowing the exchange of blood starting with one blood donation center then onto the next. This was not permitted before and will help in exchange of blood to spots of shortage. Nitty gritty rules for appropriate and effective transport of blood between banks have been recommended.

The second step is fixing of a trade an incentive for surplus plasma accessible at some blood donation centers in the nation. Without the empowering arrangement, surplus plasma was exchanged or sold by the blood donation centers with no guideline at all. Presently a trade estimation of Rs.1600/ – per liter of plasma has been fixed and the blood donation centers with surplus plasma can trade it for consumables, types of gear and so forth or plasma determined items, according to their need. This trade, be that as it may, can’t be as far as money. This progression is required to expand the accessibility of basic life sparing prescriptions like human egg whites, immunoglobulins, thickening variables, and so forth which are altogether gotten from plasma. This progression would likewise lessen the nation’s reliance on import of these items.
