This paper describes the application of new technologies that were adopted in 2002 at the Service of Immunohaematology and Transfusion Medicine (SIMT) of the Giannina Gaslini Institute (in Genoa) for the control of the storage of red blood cell (RBC) units. We first describe the instrumentation used, which consists of various probes and the corresponding temperature monitoring systems. We then detail the quality control procedures that use this instrumentation. Finally, we report and analyse the results obtained at SIMT the in the first six months of 2003.
