Alexis Crisp, MLS (ASCP) CMSBB
Our facility has a solid organ transplant program and performs a high number of ABO titers. We were performing these titers using manual tube method, which is both time-consuming and highly dependent on using proper technique. We have many generalists rotate through the blood bank. It was difficult for us to maintain competency and consistency performing ABO titers. Automating titers has freed up our techs to perform other tasks as well as give the physician a more accurate and reproducible result.
