Expanded Donor Pool
STS engages a safe, diversified pool of reliable platelet donors
To help us meet the nation’s urgent platelet need—and to provide institutions with an alternate and reliable pathogen-reduced platelet supply—Secure Transfusion Solutions (STS) has developed methods to recruit and maintain underrepresented blood donor populations, including millennials and Generation Z cohorts.
To ensure the consistency and quality of platelets, STS is committed to:
Maintaining a younger and sustainable donor pool.
Screening new donors twice before they are allowed into the donor pool in order to minimize window period risk, upholding a standard that exceeds the regulatory requirements.
Building a community of healthy, dependable donors who are compensated for their time.
Using pathogen-reduction technology (PRT) to minimize the risk of bacterial and viral contamination in all collected platelet units.
Offering 100% pathogen-reduced inventory compliant with all US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and AABB standards
Reducing supply chain interruptions to eliminate the impact to patient care
