The Terna Blood Bank works 24×7 to accommodate a need of patient when it arises. With a Component Blood Bank, we are able to supply both whole blood as well as its components such as packed cells, platelet concentrate, fresh frozen plasma, cryoprecipitate and saline washed packed cells.
Terna Blood Bank is inspected and audited by the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) who has laid down standards for management of blood banks.
We do exchange of blood and blood products across our member-hospitals whenever the need arises. It helps in supporting the lives of several patients who need blood urgently.
Our source of blood is primarily voluntary or replacement from healthy donors. Each unit of blood we collect is screened and tested for HIV1, HIV2 and HCV antibodies, Hepatitis B, surface antigens, VDRL, malarial parasites and other irregular antibodies. Within 6 hours, component of each unit of collected blood is separated under strict aseptic conditions.
The blood we supply is SAFE, TRUSTED and CERTIFIED.
