16 April 2018 (Monday) - Malaria in Transfused Blood







Earlier today the nice people at Lablogatory sent me an article which was directly relevant to what I do. They sent another article today. Interesting… but not really practical.
Malaria *can* be spread by blood transfusion. However I have no way of knowing whether or not a unit of blood that I crossmatch is infected. I can only assume that NHSBT has sorted that out.
