Transfusion Science Educational Course (TSEC)

This course provides a review of key scientific concepts necessary to identify and resolve challenges that laboratories face on a daily basis. An emphasis is put on the integration of serological and molecular methods for blood group antibody identification and compatibility testing. Interactive case studies will offer the opportunity to enhance practical case resolution skills.
