Now in its 17th edition, AABB's Technical Manual remains one of the most globally referenced sources of information in blood banking, transfusion medicine and cellular therapy. It is considered a comprehensive text that is sought after as a valuable resource assisting both seasoned professionals and newcomers in finding critical information quickly.
With updated methods, illustrations, charts and more, each of the 32 chapters has been revised to reflect the latest research in the field.
What's new in this edition:
- Key points summarizing each chapter.
- Expanded section on principles of immunology.
- Completely rewritten chapter on infectious diseases.
- Updates throughout to reflect current standards and other requirements.

Chapters are organized according to six topics: quality issues, blood donation and collection, blood groups, antigen and antibody testing, clinical considerations in transfusion practice, and transplantation. Methods are divided into eight sections: general laboratory methods; red cell typing; antibody detection, identification and compatibility testing; investigation of a positive DAT; hemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn; blood collection, component preparation and storage; transplantation of cells and tissue; and quality control. Twelve appendices offer further supporting information, ranging from normal values in the blood to resources for safety information.
