About Blood Bank:-

The blood bank was cradled in the year 2005 and is lisenced from "DRUG CONTROLLER, UP GOVT" and is approved by "DRUG CONTROLLER, Govt Of INDIA" .
In the year 2007 we got a license from the same authority for component seperation and we started making Platelets, FFP, PRBC and Cryo.
Looking at the high demands of platelets in the area being epidemic for viral diseases like JE, Dengu fever, Chicken Guinea, and so on for which the people had to go to places like Lucknow and Delhi or rather they die we decided to have the facility at own door step.
Today we are proud to declare that gradually the blood bank nurtured to easily manage 2000 units of blood per month and storage capacity of 1800 units. More over we organize donation camp in premises itself and about 30 such camps have been done till date.
In the year 2007 it was inaugurated by drug controller U.P in presence of Dr. R. K . Chowdhary (HOD, transfusion medicine, SG PGI Lucknow) and Dr. Ashutosh Kumar (HOD, Dept. of pathology, KGMC Lucknow).
By the time this component section was open, the quantum of work of this blood bank swelled up to almost 1200 to 1500 units per month with a increased storage capacity of 1200 units.
In the year 2008 we expanded the blood bank at different points like
Bleeding Room
Testing Lab And Issue
All connected with networking and facility of bar-coding was also initiated. At the same time we installed total automated ELISA testing system and all testing now are done by the same.
In the beginning of the year 2010 we further enhanced the procedure of blood bank by introducing the latest GEL TECHNIQUE for blood grouping and cross matching in order to reduce human error.
Today we have increased to 2000 units per month issue and storage capacity of 1800 units.
Academically to promote donation awareness programme, education oriented teaching programme we conduct seminars once or twice per year in which eminent scientists and doctors from different parts of country come to deliver lectures amongst doctors of Gorakhpur and eminent people of the society.
