Safe Blood
Our source of blood is primarily voluntary or replacement from healthy donors. We do not accept blood from any other sources. Each unit of blood we collect is screened and tested for HIV1, HIV2 and HCV antibodies, Hepatitis B, surface antigens, VDRL, malarial parasites and other irregular antibodies. We can thus say with utmost confidence that the blood we supply both in-patients and out-patients is safe, screened and certified.

Our motto is to provide high quality ‘Safe Blood’ to patients round the clock. We are constantly on a quest to improve and to provide the best in transfusion services to everyone.
