Many hospitals and transfusion services are now using pneumatic tube delivery systems as a means of delivering blood products faster and more efficiently. To ensure product safety and the maintenance of quality, system validation is key. The goal of this Guideline is to provide direction when considering pneumatic tube technology for blood component distribution. For facilities currently using this technology, this serves as a comparison between legacy methods and those addressed by the current validation. For institutions using legacy pneumatic tube systems, this document can help direct procedures needed to maintain long-term quality assurance goals.
