Transfusion Medicine

Alberta Precision Laboratories

Alberta Precision Laboratories (APL) Transfusion Medicine (TM) labs across the province are dedicated to providing correct and safe blood components and blood products to our patients. TM works with Canadian Blood Services to ensure patient safety and that an adequate supply of blood is available for all Albertans.

The link below provides information for clinical staff regarding blood components and blood products, including both those that contain human proteins and those that do not.

TM, in collaboration with clinical staff and educators, has developed a provincial policy addressing the transfusion of blood components and products. This policy suite and its supporting resources serve to establish a standard for the practice of transfusion in Alberta.

The Alberta Precision Laboratories (APL) Transfusion Safety Team provides clinical liaison support to help ensure the quality and safety of transfusions in Alberta hospitals
