Please update your LIMs in preparation for UK sourced FFP and cryoprecipitate components for neonates and infants

in preparation for August

If you have not already updated your LIMs please do so now.

From August we will be supplying neonatal specification components manufactured from UK plasma donations for neonates and infants up to 1 year of age.

Your orders will start to be fulfilled with a mixture of UK and/or non-UK/MB plasma components.

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on component demand, we envisage we will have exhausted our stocks of non-UK/MB components by around early/mid-2021.
