2022 PDN NAT User Group Meeting

The 2022 PDN NAT User Group Meeting took place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the first face-to-face user meeting since COVID-19 measures eased. Participants from PDN (Malaysia National Blood Bank) and users from Sabah, Sarawak, Kedah, and blood collection centers across Malaysia attended the meeting.

Many discussions took place with the intent to learn and exchange ideas to improve processes, working towards better operations within the centers, to provide a safer blood supply. Many speakers shared their knowledge and experience on topics like HEV, HBV, HCV, HIV, sample handling and transportation, contamination handling, and disaster recovery in a NAT lab.
