“…For more complete information the reader is referred to the review by McDonald [32]. A recent Cochrane review [33] summarized available trials of skin disinfection in the blood donation context and other settings. However, because of the many methodological differences, such as randomised or other design, plus differences in study population (donors or patients), type of agent used, one-or two-step procedures, method and timing of application, and different outcome measures (whole blood or final component contamination rate by culture, or clinical events), the Cochrane reviewers were unable draw any firm conclusions regarding differences between various methods and their effectiveness in reducing bacterial contamination of blood components.…”

“…Detection methods, including screening of blood components, are the subject of this review. Preventive measures include careful donor selection and predonation health screening, with donor deferral and follow‐up of postdonation information as required [4,5]; optimization of blood collection and manufacturing processes, including improvements in skin cleansing procedures [6–9], choice of collection method and consumables, diversion of initial volume away from the collection bag [10–16], environmental monitoring, and greater availability of the use of apheresis platelets to minimize exposure to donor skin flora [17,18]; developments in pathogen reduction technologies [19–24]; attention to component storage and handling; and promotion of evidence‐based clinical transfusion practice [24,25].…”
