The proceeses in a center of transfusion haematology—receiving of person’s blood, obtaining of its fresh frozen plasma, erythrocytes and thrombocytes, its testing for transmissible diseases (HIV, HBV, HCV, Wass) and evaluation of blood group and Rh, and antibodies screening—are described by a generalized net.
