LAMPIRE's Human Blood and Biological Products are collected from healthy donors. In addition to standard quality control tests, all donors of blood and blood derivatives are tested for HBsAg, HIV, HCV, and syphilis. Whole Blood is manually drawn from the donor and Source Plasma is collected by automated techniques. Defibrinated Plasma is prepared by adding calcium chloride to thawed citrated plasma, resulting in a clot. This is followed by separation of the serum as needed. Sera from Anticoagulant-Free Whole Blood is prepared by collecting approximately 450 ml whole blood without anticoagulant, allowing clot formation, then separating the resulting serum.
NOTE: Lampire's Human Blood and Biological Products are not for use in products subject to license under Section 351 of the Public Health Service Act and are not for use in transfusion.
