- Recipients are tested

6

Environment where syphilis can't survive

72 hrs in citrated blood at 1-6 degC

72 hrs at RT

7

The process of identifying and contacting recipients of blood components from a donor who, on a subsequent donation or testing, is confirmed to have tested positive for the presence of an infectious agent

LOOK BACK

8

This is the process of investigating a report of transfusion-associated infection in blood recipients who have already received blood components.

TRACEBACK

9

The only component capable of transmitting syphilis infection

Platelets

10

Purpose of TRACEBACK investigation?

Determine if any donor who provided blood for that recipient has tested positive for an infectious agent
