Question 1 of 30

Do you know what a TTI is and can you give me an example?

It is mandatory that all donated blood be tested for transfusion transmitted infections. As a blood bank laboratory technician, it is important to know what tests need to be performed on blood before it is logged and stored for possible transfusion later. Failure to test a specimen before it is made available for transfusion can result in serious harm to a recipient. The interviewer wants to know that you understand the importance of TTI screening.
