Blood Centers of the Pacific distributes a variety of blood components and derivatives. The various component categories are listed below, along with specific components and their commonality codes.
Many Transfusion Service staff have requested a guideline for the use of blood components. The most authoritative source is the most recent version of the Circular of Information (COI) for the Use of Blood and Blood Components.
This brochure is produced jointly by the AABB, America’s Blood Centers, and the American Red Cross. You can view the current version of the COI online here. Copies are also available from your Blood Centers of the Pacific location.
If you have questions concerning availability of particular blood components or special transfusion needs, please contact your blood center.
