Clinical Apheresis Services
Clinical Apheresis is the removal of abnormal or pathologic substances from a patient's blood using an automated blood cell separator machine. A replacement fluid such as fresh frozen plasma, human serum albumin or normal saline is often required.
NYBC brings the mobile Therapeutic Apheresis Services directly to the patient's facility, providing the latest continuous-flow apheresis technology operated by skilled therapeutic apheresis nurse-specialists. NYBC also follows the standards and procedures set by the American Association of Blood Banks (AABB) and the American Society for Apheresis (ASFA).
