Implementation of an international barcode labeling standard, International Society of Blood Transfusion 128, and its integration with local regulations at a blood center in India: Step-by-step journey.

The International Society of Blood Transfusion (ISBT) 128 is an internationally endorsed, electronically readable labeling standard that provides a convenient and accurate means of identification, traceability, publication, and storage of information for blood and blood products. The authors' center recently registered with the International Council for Commonality in Blood Banking Automation (ICCBBA) and progressed to ISBT 128 labeling standard. This manuscript was written with the objective of sharing the authors' experience with respect to the implementation of ISBT 128 standards for whole blood donations and integration of ISBT 128 standards with Indian licensing regulations. The authors explore the process of implementation of ISBT 128 standards through a step-by-step journey that included facility registration with International Council for Commonality in Blood Banking Automation (ICCBBA), allotment of facility identification number, development of four-quadrant label for blood components, and integration of local regulatory requirements in the final "composite" label. Acknowledging the lack of any published report from India on ISBT 128 standards implementation, the authors wish to attempt help their peers in understanding and implementation of this global standard at their respective facilities.
